Learning outcomes

he goal of the course is to give students a solid bacground in Game Theory.
Game theory provides a structured way to study strategic interactions and we can use it to better understand business strategy, contracts, auctions, voting systems, crime, bargaining, and virtually any social interaction one can think of.
Most of the topics covered in the class are contained in "Microeconomic Theory", by Mas-Colell A., M. Whinston, J. Green (1995). Further readings will be suggested during the lectures.
