Game theory is a central and dynamic part of modern microeconomics but is also used by, for example, political scientists, business administration scholars and biologists. This course provides an introduction to modern game theory which deals with economic actors’ strategic interaction. There are two main parts to the course; the first deals with games (on normal and extensive form) with complete information and the second deals with games with imperfect information.
