Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Game theory is used in many different disciplines, such as decision theory, Economics, Political Science, Marketing, Transport and Computer Science. This course gives you the opportunity to study a theoretical or applied problem in a game theoretical context. This course is given as an individual project, and includes researching different solution concepts, but also learning in games, convergence etc. An important part of this course is the technical approach, where either mathematical tools (such as stochastic approximation) and/or computer simulations are crucial. Designing and implementing experiments (where subjects participate in a game) may be required. Project planning and presentation of results are also integrated parts of this course. 

Intended learning outcomes

After this course, you should be able to

  • formulate an applied (or theoretical) problem in game theoretical terms
  • analyse the game theoretical problem, using game theoretical solution concepts
  • choose and critically evaluate a solution concept (if appropriate)
  • design and implement experiments (if appropriate)       program algorithms and implement computer simulations (if appropriate)
  • independently search and find relevant literature-       present the results both orally, and in a written report of good quality
