Game Theory


This course in designed as a brief introduction to individual decision making. Its main objective is to provide the students with basic game theory techniques that can be useful to face and understand, using logical reasoning, strategic situations that appear in all the areas of everyday life. 

We will analyse our believe system and try to answer questions like: Where do our preferences come from? Are they stable? What could be the outcome of this situation? What can I do to get the best possible outcome for me given what by opponent is doing? This course will teach you how to transfer a problem into a game and try to predict its outcome. 

Students in this course are expected to actively participate and show their opinion about the topics discussed. Each student will be asked at the end of the course to present a real-life problem, covert it into a game, predict what will be the outcome and compare it with the real life one. The knowledge obtained during those 3 weeks will improve your decision making.

Courses generally have little or no prerequisite knowledge required for a given topic, however if students face any doubts, we recommend they contact course professors to clarify.
