Economics 109: Game Theory UCSD Fall 2011 Times and Places Lectures: TuTh 8-9:20a Center Hall 105 Discussion Sections: M 6-7:50p Cognitive Science Building 002 Brief Course Description This intermediate microeconomics course examines strategic situations, in which each agent’s behavior generally affects the well-being of the other agents. Game theory is a technical framework for rigorously analyzing decision-making in such settings. Almost every type of interaction between living things is strategic. As social scientists, we focus on human interaction, and we shall assume that people behave in a rational, deliberate manner. In addition to exploring theory in the abstract, we will consider a variety of applications from economics, political science, and everyday life. Required Textbook Watson, Joel. Strategy: An Introduction to Game Theory 2 nd edition (W.W. Norton) Course Website I will post announcements, grades, and practice exams on our course website at Ted. http://ted.ucsd.edu
