Game Theory and Poe’s Detective Stories and Life is the title of a paper I discovered recently on the Internet and thought it might be a good idea to share it with you.
This paper analyzes the discovery of detective story by Edgar Allan Poe and the discovery of game theory by John Von Neumann. The detective stories written by Poe include The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Mystery of Marie Rogêt, and The Purloined Letter. It had been demonstrated that applying game theory to detective story could contribute to the development of game theory and its ability for advancing economic analysis.
