Can You Beat A Game Theorist?

Wednesday, September 15, 2021
5:30pm – 6:35pm

Storrs Campus
Monteith 214

Game theory is the study of strategic interactions. The fate of every person in a "game" will usually depend on the decisions of all "players". Nash Equilibrium, developed by Nobel Prize Winner John Forbes Nash, says that in any finite game with a finite number of players, each player has a "best response", or best strategy, for that player to win the game. This week, together we will explore many different types of games, discuss possible strategies, and try some problems to help you start thinking about these interactions like a game theorist.
