Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Course description: This course provides an introduction to more advanced concepts of Game Theory and mostly applies these concepts to topics in Industrial Organization. Roughly speaking, Industrial Organization analyses both the functioning of markets and firms' behavior in markets. This course builds on and is a continuation of the course "Entscheidungs- und Spieltheorie (MA)". Important applications discussed in this course are auctions and so-called signaling games that are prevalent in both business and daily life.

Assessment and permitted materials

Mid-course exam (50%) and final exam (50%). Bonus points can be earned by solving problems in class (homework assignments to be solved in groups). Details will be announced during the first class meeting.
