Graduate-Level Course in Game Theory
by Jim Ratliff
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.

This volume pursues the question of the emergence of institutions and hierarchy, analyzes algorithms of strategy change in evolutionary game models, and takes a historical point of view on the development of game theory during the cold war.

In this text, the author presents various mathematical models of games and study the phenomena that arise. The book covers impartial combinatorial games, two-person zero-sum games, two-person general-sum games, and games in coalitional form.

These are lecture notes for a course in game theory. The 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.

This book is a state-of-the-art look at combinatorial games, that is, games not involving chance or hidden information. The book contains articles by some of the foremost researchers and pioneers of combinatorial game theory.
