Course description

Game Theory Course: Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of game theory with this comprehensive course. Popularized by movies like "A Beautiful Mind," game theory is the mathematical modeling of strategic interactions among rational and irrational agents. It goes beyond traditional games such as chess and poker, encompassing conflicts between nations, political campaigns, corporate competition, and market dynamics in platforms like the NYSE.

Course Highlights: This course covers the essential concepts and techniques of game theory, equipping you with a solid foundation. You will learn how to represent games and strategies, explore the extensive form (commonly known as game trees in computer science), delve into Bayesian games to model auctions, and gain insights into repeated and stochastic games. Through a diverse range of examples, including classic games and real-world applications, you will develop a deeper understanding of this captivating field.

Practical Applications: Game theory finds relevance in various domains, including economics, politics, and social sciences. By grasping the fundamentals of game theory, you will be able to analyze strategic interactions and understand the incentives that drive decision-making processes. This knowledge will enable you to model complex scenarios such as keyword auctions and peer-to-peer file-sharing networks, providing valuable insights into human behavior and optimizing outcomes in competitive settings.
