Taming the Wild, improved

January 21, 2005 at 1:35 am (papers)

I’ve corrected some errata and improved the exposition in section 9 of my paper, “Taming the Wild in Impartial Combinatorial Games.” This is the paper you should start with if you’re interested in how the Sprague-Grundy theory of impartial combinatorial games generalizes to misere play via classical commutative semigroup theory and the indistinguishability quotient construction. The paper is available at the arXiv via this link.
