This course presents an overview of game theory for the social sciences. We first cover the foundations of game theory, and then study a variety of special topics. These include sequential and repeated games, games of incomplete information (Bayesian games), contest modeling, mechanism design, the history of game theory, and evolutionary game theory. Graduate students should register for ECON 6330 and will be held to higher standards and/or additional work.
