Respond to the question: What math to start?

04/04/2008 10:55 AM by Monty; What math to start?
Hello, I'm recently interested in Game Theory and have a fairly basic understanding of the subject, ie. I've worked through some limited game trees, payoffs, dominant strategies, and equilibriums.
I want to explore further into the technical details but I'm going to need to re-learn some math because it's been a long time. What should I have an understanding of so that I can understand some basic game theory equations? I'm not trying to one-up Nash here, I just want to be able to work through the basics.
Linear-algebra? Calculus? I'm just looking for a bare-bones roadmap, sorry if I'm sounding a bit remedial.
Thanks for your help!
