CSCI 3210. Computational Game Theory

Mohammad Irfan
Examines game theory from the perspective of computer science. Game theory, also known as the mathematical theory of strategic interactions, rose to prominence due to its applicability to a variety of strategic scenarios ranging from markets and auctions to kidney exchanges to social influence. These scenarios often involve complex interactions in large-scale systems, giving rise to many computational questions, including: identifying the complexity class of solving games; how algorithms for certain games are devised; how local interactions lead to global outcomes; how individual choices, such as selfishness, impact outcomes. Most questions addressed theoretically, some by programming.
