Mathematical Game Theory

Every day, almost every minute we make a choice. Right now you have made the choice to read this text instead of scrolling further. Choices can be insignificant: to go by tram or by bus, to take an umbrella or not. Sometimes they can be very significant and even crucial: the choice of University, life partner. However, the importance of choice may not be realized initially. Sometimes a decision "not to take an umbrella" radically changes everything. The choice may affect a small group of people or entire countries. In game тtheory, we call it the choice of strategy. Constantly interacting with society and adopting certain strategies, many of us wonder: why can't everyone exist peacefully and cooperate with each other? Why do those who have agreed to cooperate, suddenly break the agreement? What if one is cooperative and the other is not? How profitable should the interaction be for the opponent to change his opinion? When are long-term stable prospects better than short-term benefits, and when not? The answers to these and other questions you will find out in our course. This course will be useful for those who want to make choices based on mathematical calculations rather than relying on fate. Who is interested in world politics and at least once heard about the "Prisoner's Dilemma". The course is basic and does not require any special knowledge. In several sections, definitions and theorems from mathematical analysis and elements of probability theory will be used.

What people are saying

particularly enjoyable after

Particularly enjoyable after other introductory courses on GT.

advanced issue typically

W5 introduces the interesting notion of time consistency of the equilibrium solutions of games, that is quite an advanced issue typically not presented in other GT courses.

practical solution tool

W6 lays on similarity with the previous approaches to give the idea of the results, but fails to transmit a practical solution tool.

quite an advanced

definitely this argument

W6 is about differential games and definitely this argument deserves a full course on itself to be fully understood and above all to learn how to solve this class of games.
