This has nothing to do with R as such; I'm simply trying to exploit
the vast resource of knowledge and expertise that resides in the R

For my sins, I am teaching a course on Game Theory this term.  Game
Theory I know from ***nothing***.  I am trying to learn the subject
as I go along, staying perhaps half a step in front of the students.

I am having considerable difficulty with several elementary points,
(vis-a-vis two person non-zero-sum games) and have not yet succeeded
in clarifying these points from any of the books that I have managed
to get my hands on.

Is there any kind soul out there (or do any of you have a kind-soul
colleague) who might be willing to discuss some of my game theory
difficulties with me by email?  Such a person would earn my undying
gratitude.  (Sorry that I can't offer a more substantial reward. :-) )

Since this is off-topic, please reply to me (only) at

		rolf at math.unb.ca

and not to the list.

Thanks, and thanks to everyone for their patience with my usurption
of bandwidth.
