Game theory is incredibly versatile and complex. Through this cohort, we hope to give students the analytical skills necessary to interpret and manipulate games. Over the course of the year, we will introduce students to strategies and models as well as current research in the field, building up to a final research project in the winter and spring. We further hope to expand game theory beyond the realm of economics, possibly exploring its implications in business transactions, investor behavior, sports, or politics.

First Quarter: LEARNING
– Learn about basic concepts and practice already established problems
– Read past research papers involving game theory and examine how game theory can be applied in the real world

Second Quarter: RESEARCHING
– Decide what field you want to focus on
– Continue to research that specific topic
– Develop a hypothesis and design a study that will be carried out

Third Quarter: INTERPRETING FINDINGS
– Finish collecting data and analyzing it/translate findings into a research paper
