Game theory analyzes situations characterized by strategic interdepency (i.e. multiple agents have to make a decision and situation of an agent depends of choices made by other agents with every agents being aware aware of that).

This course provides a general presentation of the main concepts in this fields. It consists of two parts. The first part elaborates on the concepts of strategy, information and equilibrium concepts used in Game Theory (especially equilibrium in dominant strategies, Nash equilibrium in pure and mixed strategies and sequential and repeated games).

The second part consists in a presentation of equilibrium concepts in the context of incomplete information (especially Nash Bayesian and Perfect Nash Bayesian equilibria) and provides a short introduction to cooperative game theory and bargaining.
