A basic knowledge of Probability Theory
Verification of learning will consist of two parts:
1) A short written thesis about a chosen topic to be exposed to the class as a lecture.
2) A traditional oral exam, during which the student will have to show that she/he has acquired the basic notions and the proofs of the main theorems.
The 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 which he knows how to apply them on an elementary level.
