Description

This course examines topics in game theory from a computer scientist's perspective. Through the lens of computation, this course will focus on the design and analysis of systems involving self-interested agents, investigating how strategic behavior should influence algorithm design, which game-theoretic solution concepts are practical to implement, and the ramifications of conflicts of interest between system designers and participating agents. Topics include: auctions and mechanism design, equilibria, and learning.
