Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of the course is an introduction to classical and modern concepts of game theory, with a focus on economic applications. The content includes normal and extensive form of games, dominant strategies, Nash equilibrium, iterated games, evolution of cooperation, cooperative game theory, negotiations, mixed extension of games, as well as basic ideas of rational choice and bounded rationality theories. The presentation of theory alternates with the solution of illustrative exercises by the participants. At some points, experimental games are carried out to deepen the understanding of the concepts.

Assessment and permitted materials

The participants can choose between different "modes" of active engagement or combine them, as presentation of solved exercises at the blackboard, presentation of small computer programs (e.g. in Excel), short talks on selected topics, or participation in an optional final exam.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Three "activity points" received during the semester are a minimum requirement.

Examination topics
