Are game theory and chaos theory related

Chaos theory and corporate management


Managers in companies are often surprised by the consequences of their decisions: The consequences are often unexpected and undesirable. The classic "decision under uncertainty" approach explains this with a lack of information about exogenous factors. However, there are decisions whose uncertainty is endogenous, i.e. based on the complexity of the decision-making situation.

Since decision-determining mental models ignore essential properties of complexity and thus uncertainty turns into ignorance, Torsten Büssow reconstructs the phenomenon of complexity mathematically and makes it understandable and manageable by means of model-based decision preparation. He justifies the need to use mathematical models for handling complexity in terms of behavioral and cognitive science and thus expands the system-theoretical instruments in business administration, which have so far been based on verbal and iconic access.
