Game Theory: Course Description

Game theory is a method by which economists attempt to predict behavior in situations where two or more participants must make strategic decisions. These predictions take the form of solution concepts that describe how the game will play out. This free OpenCourseWare class from MIT in Cambridge introduces students to many of the fundamental topics that are key to understanding game theory and its application to Economics. Professors Haluk Ergin and Muhamet Yildiz present lectures on several of the classic game types, including repeated games, signaling games and Bayesian games. They also cover multiple kinds of equilibrium, including perfect, correlated and Nash equilibrium. This course can be helpful to students studying for a master's degree in Economics.

Lecture notes, readings and sample assignments are available free online. To find out more about this Economics class, visit the game theory course page.
