**Course objectives**- Basic course on Game Theory with the stress on aplications in economy. Three basic mathematical models (normal form, characteristic function, extensive form) are studied. Various concepts of equilibria are discussed. Numerous practical problems are solved.
**Syllabus**- n-person games in normal form (equilibra concepts, their existence). 2-person games in normal form (antagonistic games, optimal strategies, solution of matrix games, games on the square,multi-stage games). Nonantagonistic 2-person games (bimatrix games, utility theory, the bargaing problem, threats). n-person games in characteristic function form (the core, its existence, von Neumann - Morgenstern's solution, the Shapley value, applications in economics). Games in extensive form.
