Abstract

This chapter provides a general overview of the topic of network games, its application in a number of areas, and recent advances, by focusing on four major types of games, namely, congestion games, resource allocation games, diffusion games, and network formation games. Several algorithmic aspects and methodologies for analyzing such games are discussed, and connections between network games and other relevant topical areas are identified.
