[A.] "IG Package"
Abstract: This package provides C code for finding a
system of equations with the number of unknowns equal to the number of
equations, based on an algorithm for computing a fixed point due to
myself and Rabee Tourky. It is intended for inclusion in larger
software systems that need to solve such systems. The code was
written by Colin Ramsay, and the manual was writtem by Colin and

[B.] "Three D Tricks"
If you have ever used Timothy van Zandt's package PSTricks, you probably like
it a lot, since it provides simple and practical tools for preparing
a wide variety of figures, charts, and other illustrations that are suitable
for scientific papers. But there is one big problem: it doesn't handle
the third dimension. ThreeDTricks is a perl script that allows you to edit a
file for simple PSTricks objects in a three dimensional coordinate system,
then pass from that to a standard PSTricks file. You can read more about it
If you would like to try it out, here is the .tar.gz archive:
[C.] "The Expected Number of Nash Equilibria of a Normal Form
Game" Abstract: Ever wonder how many Nash
equilibria a "typical" or "average" normal form game has. OK, so
probably you don't lie awake thinking about it. But even so, now you
can know! This software is configured to document the tables in the
paper, but it can easily be used to generate a wide variety of
numerical findings. To access it unload the file meannonash.tar, do
'gunzip meannonash.tar.gz' followed by 'tar xvf meannonash.tar', and
then take further direction from the README.
