1 Learning in games Drew Fudenberg and David Levine, The Theory of Learning in Games
1.1 Fictitious play Let γ denotes frequencies of i ’s opponents play i t number of times s was played till i now γ ( s i i t ) = t γ i t Player i plays the best response BR Big concerns: Asymptotic behavior: do we converge or do we cycle? If we converge, then to what subset of Nash equilibria? Caveat. Empirical distribution need not converge

1.2 Replicator dynamics Call θ s i i t = fraction of players of type i who play s i . Postulate dynamics In discrete time θ vector +1 θ +1 i t i t ( s 1 ) , ..., θ +1 i t ( s n ) = θ vector i t i t θ vector i t θ vector + λ BR = In continuous time d θ vector +1 i t i t i t θ vector θ vector = λ BR dt Then analyze the dynamics: chaos, cycles, fixed points
1.3 Experience weighted attraction model, EWA Camerer-Ho, Econometrica 1999 Denote N t = number of “observation equivalent” past responses such that N t +1 = ρN t + 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
