Congratulations to Yisrael Aumann upon winning the Nobel (Memorial) Prize in economics. He is a heimishe yid originally from New York and a brother-in-law of Rav Shlesinger from Shaalvim. He is a talmid chakham who has written some very nice game-theory-related chiddushim on various sugyas.

(He disagrees with my theories on kavua, which just goes to show that even Nobel laureates make mistakes.)

Can you supply any references to his game-thory based chiddushim? (Other than his article in Journal of Economic Thory on the mishna in ksuvos.) Actually, I'd prefer writeups for the layman, if you know of any.

Thanks, gmar chasima tova
