This course is an introduction to game theory. Ideas such as repeated games, incomplete information are discussed and applied to games played in class and to examples drawn from economics, politics, the movies, and elsewhere. This course will sharpen your understanding of strategic behavior in encounters with other individuals. You will learn how to recognize and model strategic situations, to predict when and how your actions will influence the decisions of others and to exploit strategic situations for your own benefit. The course aims to provide students with a basic understanding of the language and concepts of game theory, as well as providing some surveys of important theoretical models within the field. Game theory, like any formal theory, relies on Mathematics to make progress and exact statements. When necessary we will review the needed mathematical tools for each topic.
