Summary Six pairs of people are deposited in separate locations all over New York City and ordered to find each other -- without being told where to look. This program presents an intriguing psychological puzzle involving participants who must join up -- somewhere, somehow -- in a city of eight million people. Incorporating principles from the mathematical discipline known as game theory the program shows how envisioning the plans and intentions of others, when utilizing the scantiest of evidence and the most basic inferences, can produce a viable strategy. In the 2nd part of the program, how game theory and "credible threats" influence behavior-- five overweight people are challenged to lose 15 lbs in two months in order to prevent photographs of themselves in small swimsuits from airing on TV.
