As such the course introduces the necessary tools to model both individual and strategic decision environments. The main topics include consumer theory (utility maximization and choice under uncertainty) as well as introducing students to static games of complete information, dynamic games of complete information, static games of incomplete information and dynamic games of incomplete information. For each class of games, the appropriate equilibrium concept is defined.
