GOVT 18 Introduction to Political Game Theory

Game theory is used to study how individuals and organizations interact strategically, and this course introduces game theory with a focus on political science applications. Game theory is a standard tool in the social sciences, and insights from game theory are essential to  nderstanding many facets of politics, such as political party competition, legislative politics, international relations, and the provision of public goods. Among other topics, the course will cover normal and extensive form games, Nash equilibria, imperfect information, mixed strategies, and, if time permits, the basics of games with incomplete information.  A course in game theory will change that way that one views the world.
