Content

Game theory is the study of multiperson decision problems. Such problems arise frequently in competitive scenarios where knowledge is distributed, such as in economics.  For instance, oligopolies incorporate multiperson problems: each one must consider what the others will do in order to achieve success in a competitive environment. In this course of game theory we study the elements of game theoretical models, including notions of:

  • Repeated games
  • Non-cooperative and cooperative games
  • Incomplete and complete information games
  • Static and dynamic games
  • Equilibrium
  • Trade models
  • Oligopolies

 


Information

  • The exam is open to everyone. There are no requirements (like solving exercises).
  • The first exam will take place on Thursday, the 26th July from 9-11 AM in Auditorium O28 H22.  The exam will take 2 hours and comprise 6 exercises on all topics, including exercises involving proofs.
  • The second exam will take place on Thursday, the 18th October.


Exercises

  • Exercise 1 -- Solution 1
