Game Theory

Professor

Mark Halsey

Schedule

Wed Fr††††††††† 10:00 am - 11:20 am†††† PRE 128

In the twentieth century, the theory of games gained prominence for its application to the social sciences. Game theory is a mathematical approach to modeling situations of conflict whether real of theoretical. This course will introduce the student to this exciting area of mathematics. Using algebra and some analytical geometry, students will be able to explore the mathematical foundations of game theory. At the same time students will encounter a wide range of applications of the theory of games. Topics covered will be chosen from: zero sum games, nonzero sum games, pure and mixed strategies, von Neumannís Minimax Theorem, Nash equilibria, and cooperative games.

Prerequisites: Precalculus or permission of the instructor.

Cross-listed: Economics

Operations research is a scientific approach to decision making, which seeks to determine how best to design and operate a system, usually under conditions requiring the allocation of scarce resources.This course will introduce the student to the branch of operations research known as deterministic optimization.Deterministic optimization tackles problems such as how to schedule classes with a limited number of classrooms on campus, how to determine a diet that is both rich in nutrients and low in calories, how design a machine that will be most energy efficient and how to create an investment portfolio that meets your investment needs.A broad range of optimization techniques will be covered in this course including linear programming, network flows, integer/combinatorial optimization and nonlinear programming.The course will emphasize the importance of problem formulation as well as how to apply algorithms to real-world problems to arrive at optimal solutions.Prerequisites: A working knowledge of multivariable calculus and basic linear algebra.
