Honors Advanced Topics in Economics: Game Theory

Game Theory seeks to systematically explore the strategic interactions of humans in various contexts from international diplomatic relations to parents and children. Using models for understanding different players, their strategy options, and payouts, Game Theory can be used to predict the outcome of these strategic interactions given the assumption of rational actors. Different game types include: one-time simultaneous games, repeated games, sequential games, mixed strategy games, threats, promises and the manipulation of games, and possibly the strategy of auctions, negotiations and voting.

Prerequisite: AP Economics. Seniors may request to take Game Theory concurrently with AP Macroeconomics in the spring. UC approved.
