This course provides a rigorous introduction of game theory, which is the most important analytical tool in economics and other fields of social science. You will study how to analyze strategic situations (games), which can be static or dynamic and which may involve incomplete information, along with many examples such as oligopolistic markets, monetary policies, bargaining, repeated games, auctions, signaling in a labor market, reputation formations and so on.

MATH 217 is not an absolute requirement but students should be familiar with basic calculus and logics. Knowledge of basic probabilities is helpful. The first one or two discussion sections will be devoted to reviewing these topics.
