Number of pages: 134

Description:
These are lecture notes for a course in game theory which the author taught at the University of Kaiserslautern. Game Theory is a formal approach to study games: conflicts where some number of players take part and each one tries to maximize his utility in taking part in the conflict. This text covers general concepts of two person games, Brouwer’s fixed point theorem and Nash’s equilibrium theorem, more general equilibrium theorems, cooperative games and differential games.
