Game theory represents a theoretical background for optimal behaviour in economic and non-economic decision making situations with several participants. This course examines game-theoretic concepts, models of conflicts and cooperation, concept of equilibrium in different types of strategic interactions and basic computational algorithms. It provides illustrations of presented concepts on basic well-known representative games and also relies on published in-class experiments to provide the students a hands-on experience. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to describe, represent and solve decision making situations with several participants. They will also be able to find optimal solutions in decisions under risk and uncertainty.
