Game Theory. 2018, Winter - ECON 3M03, M. Ivanov 2017, Fall - ECON 3M03, M. Tremblay Game theory itself is the science that studies strategic interaction, the interplay of competition and cooperation between rational, intelligent people. %�쏢 Wherever game theory plays a quantitative role, algorithmic and computational questions related to "solving" games are also of central importance. Course Description This course/workshop aims to provide an invigorating intellectual environment for graduate students and junior faculty who are interested in economic theory. The general style of the course is formal, and the number of theorems and proofs is relatively high. In the process, I will outline some of the many applications of Game Theory, primarily in economics. cheung@ntu. It is important to emphasize that the outline is subject to change based on demand, timing differences, etc. sg COURSE DESCRIPTION Game theory provides managers a structured and coherent approach to making better strategic decisions in an environment where conduct of competitors is often … 0
To read the notes, you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader for your platform. Game theory provides a general framework to describe and analyze how individuals behave in such “strategic” situations. Ideas such as dominance, backward induction, Nash equilibrium, evolutionary stability, commitment, credibility, asymmetric information, adverse selection, and signaling are discussed and applied to games played in class and to examples drawn from economics, politics, the movies, and elsewhere. The course will study a range of topics at this interface. Game theory is about what happens when decision makers (spouses, workers, managers, presidents) interact. Pre-requisites: Knowledge of elementary probability theory, (mean, standard deviation and basic maximisation problem in calculus) plus some introductory economics (marginal costs, fixed and variable costs, monopoly) are recommended. The notes for the course are in electronic form in PDF format. Links will become live close to the time of each class. In the past ﬁfty years, game theory has gradually became a standard language in economics. endstream

The course is intended to give PhD students a basic course in game theory. This course introduces students to the basic tools of game theory and its applications to business choices. The course requires some quantitative skills and knowledge of principles of microeconomics. Topics include models of games in extensive and strategic form, equilibria with randomization, signaling and beliefs, reputation in repeated games, bargaining games, investment hold-up problems, mediation and incentive constraints. )

In this course, we explore a branch of mathematics known as game theory, which answers these questions and many more. This course focuses on the key concepts in game theory, and attempts to outline the informal basic ideas that are often hidden behind mathematical definitions. Game theory has many applications as we face dilemmas and conflicts every day, most of which we can treat as mathematical games. This is a graduate-level, introductory course on algorithmic game theory. Current Course Outlines.
