Abstract This report reviews methodologies and applications in the literature pertaining to decision making problems in the presence of adversaries. This investigation is essentially motivated by the need to determine optimal strategies against an adversarial and adaptive opponent. Such a problem arises in the context of terrorism threats. Probabilistic risk analysis is an insightful approach to this end; however, it lacks the essential adversarial decision processes perspective. Hence, applications of game theory in this context are examined, followed by its combination with other approaches. Possible future research areas are described subsequently.
