A conference-cum-workshop on Game Theory and Optimization was held at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, during June 6–10, 2016. One of the primary objectives of the event was to commemorate the 75th birthday of Professor T. Parthasarathy, fondly referred to as TP. A special session was devoted to his life and mathematical career. This provided a platform for many of TP’s students and collaborators to share their experiences with the audience. The conference was made possible through funding from the National Mathematics Initiative. Additional funding was received from the Office of Alumni and International Relations, the Departments of Mathematics, and Management Studies, Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras). Following is a brief overview of the contributions to this special issue, a biography of Professor TP, and a list of his publications. The Guest Editors would like to thank all the authors, Annals of Operations Research Editor-in-Chief, Endre Boros, and all referees who provided peer review. This special issue would not have been possible without their valuable time and input.
