Game Theory and Its Applications
- to familiarize student managers with the basic concepts of the theory of non-cooperative games, with a focus on the Nash equilibrium apparatus
- the formation of theoretical analysis skills by solving problems and analyzing real or stylized situations
- Is able to classify different types of games, to find a solution of a game
- Can find Pareto optimum and Nash Equilibrium in pure and in mixed strategies
- Can sind a solution in dynamic games with perfect and imperfect information
- Is able to find a solution of finitely or infinitely repeated game
- Can define a coalition value function, Shapely value and find a core
- Can use Gale-Shapely algorithm, know Impossibility Theorem and Condorset paradox
- Knows the basics of mechanism design
