About these proceedings


The ~irst international con~erence on differential games was held at Amherst, Massachusetts, in September 1969. A second meeting, partially supported by N.A.T.O., was held in Varenna, Italy, in June 1970. At these conferences many new theoretical results and applications, especially in economic problems, were presented. The present volume consists o~ the lectures presented at a N.A.T.O. Advanced Study Institute on the "Theory and Applications of Differential Games" held at the University of Warwick, Coventry, England, from 27th August to 6th September, 1974. The main contributions during the first week consisted of a survey of two person zero sum differential games by L. D. Berkovitz and four integrated lectures by R. J. Elliott and N. J. Kalton, who have made important contributions to the concept of "value" of a differential game. Applications were featured during the second week and included tactical air games, pursuit and evasion problems, as well as computational aspects. A closing lecture with historical perspectives was given by Rufus Issacs, the recognised pioneer of differential games theory.
