Project Description

PyNFG is a Python package for modeling and solving Network Form Games. It is distributed under the GNU Affero GPL. http://www.gnu.org/licenses/agpl.html

1. Welcome

PyNFG is designed to make it easy for researchers to model strategic environments using the Network Form Game (NFG) formalism developed by David Wolpert with contributions from Ritchie Lee, James Bono and others. The main idea of the NFG framework is to translate a strategic environment into the language of probabilistic graphical models. The result is a more intuitive, powerful, and user-friendly framework than the extensive form.

For an introduction to the semi-NFG framework and Level-K D-Relaxed Strategies:

2. Installation

PyNFG requires the following packages: Numpy, Scipy, Matplotlib, Networkx, and PyGraphviz. Pygraphviz and Networkx are used only for visualizing the Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs) that represent semi-NFGs.

To install from source: Download the source, unzip and then from the directory with the unzipped files, do “python setup.py install”.

PyNFG is also on github and is located at https://github.com/jwbono/PyNFG.

3. Questions and Comments

The documentation is hosted at http://pythonhosted.org/PyNFG/.

For questions about using PyNFG in your research, reporting bug fixes and offering suggestions, please subscribe to the mailing list (low volume) by sending an email to pynfg+subscribe@googlegroups.com and then sending the inquiry to pynfg@googlegroups.com.

4. Contributors

PyNFG is authored by James Bono, Justin Grana, and Dongping Xie. The project has received valuable feedback from David Wolpert, Adrian Agogino, Juan Alonso, Brendan Tracey, Alice Fan, Dominic McConnachie, Kee Palopo, Huu Huynh, and others.
