Game theory is widely used in the fields of economics, political science, psychology and biology. As an introduction, this course studies the theories and concepts of game theory, mainly from an economic perspective. We will discuss topics such as rationalizability, Nash equilibrium, mixed strategies, sub-game perfection, repeated games and Bayesian equilibrium. Students will learn to apply what they have learned in class to analyze the conflict and cooperation involved in decision-making processes between people and explain why an individual or a group makes a particular decision in real world scenarios.
