Primary Instructor:

An advanced game theory course. Topics include: solution concepts (iterated dominance, rationalizability, Nash equilibrium, subgame perfection, sequential equilibrium), infinitely repeated games (dynamic programming, self-generation, stick-and-carrot punishments, renegotiation, folk theorems), evolutionary game theory (evolutionary stable strategies, replicator dynamics, adaptive play), games with incomplete information (revelation principle, single crossing property, mechanism design), and implementation theory (social choice functions, voting schemes, implementation in dominant strategies and Nash equilibrium). Many examples illustrate these concepts: Vickrey auctions, signalling games, entry-deterrence, bargaining models, oligopolistic supergames, optimal auction design, and nonlinear pricing.
