THE DIFFICULT BEGINNINGS OF GAME THEORY: ZERMELO AND STEINHAUS. A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF EARLY RESEARCH ON SOLUTIONS TO MATHEMATICAL GAME PROBLEMS
Languages of publication
This article presents the first problems that were analyzed in a manner that would a few years later be embraced by the expression game theory. Both texts are earlier than the book of Oskar Morgenstern and John von Neumann, but in my opinion both should be considered as fundamental and inspiring sources of the framework of the game analysis. The article of the Polish mathematician, Hugo Steinhaus, was almost unknown until the late sixties, due to the language it had been written in, and it still remains generally unknown even in Poland. I make an effort to show similarities of intellectual climate in Lwów as well as in other scientific centres, as well as to draw attention to Polish successes in an area that at the time was only an idea, not a ready and finished concept.
