Introduction to analytical models, often referred to as games, in which the choices of individual rational actors jointly produce significant outcomes. Topics include games such as prisoner's dilemma and the stag hunt, collective action problems, bargaining, signaling, principle-agent models, and the limitations of such approaches given insights from cognitive psychology. These approaches will be applied to international relations, party and interest group politics, political institutions, a selection of problems from other social science fields, and everyday life.
