## AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Understanding the strategic behavior of rational decision makers by illustrating game concepts in a strategic, extended and characteristic way, and hence the various concepts of solution and balance for cooperative, bargaining and non-cooperative games. Provide specific analysis elements for the games considered by offering appropriate treatment of the various forms of information, knowledge and learning

TEACHING METHODS

Teaching style: In presence

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Very important topics in GT

a)    a)Taxonomy of games (cooperative, non-cooperativi, static and dynamic games), from finite games to infinite ones;b) the nash equilibrium and the problem of efficiency of solutions; c) strategic , extensive, with complete information,  with imperfect information games)

2) Game Theory and Mathematical Analysis: well-posedness problem, approximate solutions and convergence.

3) GT and Economics: oligopoly problems, from the static case

(Counot, Bertrand) to dynamic one (Stackelberg)

4) Refinment of Nash equilibria: dominated strategies , stability and perfectness in the subgames.

5)From vector Optimization to multicriteria games

6) Cooperative games and solutions

7) Partially cooperative games and applications to environmental and medicine problems
