I came across an interesting article in the latest issue of The Zine. Basically it seems to say that if you take naughts and crosses (or any other two-player turn based game), and “payolarise” the game by adding bribery, there still exists an optimal strategy. I haven’t read through the article in detail, I believe at this stage that these conclusions are correct, but some of the arguments appear to have some dubiety.

The article is also noteworthy for the terrible presentation of mathematical formulae in HTML that it contains. Which prompted me to try and find a way to better present such mathematical material. I was fiddling around with a couple of things with no success, and wonder if anyone else knows how best to proceed. Ideally, I’d like to at least be able to retypeset that article.
