In everyday language, life is often said to be “just like a game”. When a football match ends, it is “game over”. In economics, we have various versions of the “Prisoners’ Dilemma” game. Moreover, the award-winning movie “A Beautiful Mind” depicts the story of John Nash, the first Nobel Laureate who is accredited to spearheading the theory.

In this mini series, we will cover:
1.1. Basic concepts of game theory
1.2. Importance of game theory
1.3. A few practical examples of game theory including mechanism design (auction design) and market design (school matching and kidney exchange).
