Game Theory by Design

Spring 2021

Taught By: Kaleem Kamboj

Section: A

CRN: 7536

Credits: 3

Can a game describe, predict, and explain how people behave in strategic situations? Game theory is an interdisciplinary study of strategy that has revolutionized the fields of business, economics, psychology, mathematics, and philosophy. In this class we will play a wide array of games that models and predicts the behaviors of the players who are seeking the best outcomes for themselves. The students will critically examine the design of strategic situations and decision-making processes and apply the insights into everyday decision-making in business and society. The class will provide an advanced option for business strategy and systems thinking and will explore the basic principles in game theory like Nash Equilibrium, Coordination Games, The Hawk-Dove Game, Mixed Strategies, Pareto-Optimality, and Social Optimality.
