Game Theory

Game theory, within the last several decades, has grown into one of the most important and popular tools used in understanding the interactions between individuals, institutes, or countries, especially in the fields of economics, business, politics and biology. Though it is based on a strong mathematic foundation, this course aims at providing the introductory concepts and techniques to the undergraduate students.

The class will turn its focus on several popular applications and extensions of game theory uring the second half after students getting more familiar with the solution concepts.
