Introduction to Game Theory
- Scott H. Ainsworth, University of Georgia
This workshop introduces students to one of the most important areas of decision theory, the analysis of strategic choice. The fundamental concepts of rational choice will be thoroughly explained and integrated into a broad overview of game theory. Cooperative games will be briefly introduced but noncooperative games will secure the most attention. Common solution concepts - such as Nash, subgame, sequential, and Bayesian - will be introduced and motivated from first principles. Applications to a variety of substantive fields will be discussed. The prerequisite for the workshop is a semester of college-level calculus or comparable mathematical knowledge.
