**Course:** Game Theory is a relatively new and
exciting field of mathematics
which has applications to economics and many other areas.
This course covers standard topics in game theory such as combinatorial
games, two person (zero-sum and general-sum) games, noncooperative
games, and Nash's equilibrium theorem. We will focus on the
mathematics involved.

**Text:** The text for this course is "
Game Theory" by Thomas S. Ferguson, available free online at his
UCLA webpage. Some auxillary sources which may be helpful to consult,
on reserve in the Math/Physics Library in DRL 3N1, are
