This course focuses on the methods and applications of non-cooperative game theory, a systematic and rigorous approach to the analysis of decisions in situations of conflict and/or cooperation. The course reviews a series of applications of static game theory, which studies situations in which agents choose competitive and cooperative strategies given the strategies used by other agents. The course also presents evolutionary game theory, in which sets of strategies and the agents that use them change over time under environmental pressure.
