GAME THEORY & STRATEGY
ECON-2203-001 (3) Tuesday, Thursday 10:00AM - 11:15AM
This is an introductory course in game theory. Game theory is a modern area of study that examines decisions and outcomes in strategic settings. It provides an analytical tool that is used for analyzing conflict and cooperation that arise in various social settings involving interactions between individuals and/or organizations. The focus of the course is on non-cooperative game theory, although some concepts from cooperative game theory may be covered as well. Ideas such as Nash equilibrium, dominance, backward induction, evolutionary stability, commitment, credibility, asymmetric information and uncertainty are discussed and applied to examples drawn from economics, business, politics and elsewhere.
