This will be a two-part handbook on Dynamic Game Theory and part of the Springer Reference program. Part I will be on the fundamentals and theory of dynamic games. It will serve as a quick reference and a source of detailed exposure to topics in dynamic games for a broad community of researchers, educators, practitioners, and students. Each topic will be covered in 2-3 chapters with one introducing basic theory and the other one or two covering recent advances and/or special topics. Part II will be on applications in fields such as economics, management science, engineering, biology, and the social sciences.

Since 2014, he also holds the administrative position of Director of the Center for Advanced Study, and prior to that he was Interim Director of the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology. He received his BSEE degree from Robert College (Istanbul), and MS, MPhil, and Ph.D. degrees from Yale University (New Haven). Dr. BaÅar is a member of the US National Academy of Engineering and the European Academy of Sciences; Fellow of IEEE, IFAC, and SIAM; a past president of the IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS), the founding (and past) president of the International Society of Dynamic Games (ISDG), and a past president of the American Automatic Control Council (AACC). He has received several awards and recognitions over the years, including the highest awards of IEEE CSS, IFAC, AACC, and ISDG, the IEEE Control Systems Technical Field Award, Medal of Science of Turkey, and a number of international honorary doctorates and professorships. He has over 800 publications in systems, control, communications, optimization, networks, and dynamic games, including books on non-cooperative dynamic game theory, robust control, network security, wireless and communication networks, and stochastic networks. He is editor of several book series.
Georges Zaccour holds the Chair in Game Theory and Management and is full professor of Management Science at HEC Montréal. He holds a Ph.D. in management science, an M.Sc. in international business from HEC Montréal and a licence in mathematics and economics from Université Paris-Dauphine. He served as director of GERAD, an inter-university research center and director of the Ph.D. program at HEC Montréal. His research areas are dynamic games, optimal control and operations research and their applications in management science and economics, areas in which he has published more than one hundred seventy papers and co-edited thirteen volumes. He coauthors the books Differential Games in Marketing and Games and Dynamic Games. He is editor-in-chief of Dynamic Games and Applications and fellow of The Royal Society of Canada and was president of the International Society of Dynamic Games (2002-2006).
