**Description**:

These are lecture notes from a game-theory course the author taught to students in their second year of the economics PhD program at the University of Arizona. The material presented would also be helpful to first-year PhD students learning game theory as part of their microeconomic-theory sequence, as well as to advanced undergraduates learning game theory. The exposition is detailed, rigorous, and self-contained.
