  INTRODUCTION TO GAME THEORY IN SOCIAL SCIENCES
 
 
 
The aim of this course is to present concisely the classical Game Theory, without assuming prior knowledge of the subject by the student. The course will try to clarify the main ideas of Game Theory, providing a general theoretical framework that allows, for those interested, further and deeper study. In order to make the addressing of the topic more intuitive, examples of different application fields will be provided - law, economics, political theory and the theory of evolution - showing, in this way, the wide range of issues that can be studied and clarified using the tools of Game Theory . Some attention will be paid to Evolutionary Game Theory.

Course length: 5 classes
March and April 2012, David Hume Institute Foundation and ESEADE University.
