Basic notions of Probability Theory
Oral exam with a term paper on a chosen topic. The precise modality of the exam will be discussed with the student.
The educational objectives of the course are to give the student an introduction to the theory of games and its applications.
Since Game Theory focuses mainly on the notion of equilibrium, the student is expected to acquire the fundamental notions of equilibrium in the different contexts that Game Theory proposes, and that he learns how to apply them on an elementary level.
