Game theory is a field of study that helps us understand decision making in strategic situations. In addition to being an important methodology within the economics discipline, it also gives insights into pricing and management strategies used by a business. Furthermore, game theory has wide-ranging applications in areas such as international relations, political science and military strategy. Much of game theory involves the interaction of decision makers where there is an asymmetry of information. Thus, the study of game theory can provide insights into how decision makers act when there is some important information that they cannot directly observe.
- Demonstrate an understanding of games in pure and mixed strategies.
- Explain the game theoretic concepts of uncertainty, information and strategic moves.
- Explain the characteristics and application of repeated games and associated trigger strategies.
- Apply mechanism design to business applications such as pricing and project management.
- Critically analyse the various forms of game theoretic bargaining.
