In this text, we present various mathematical models of games and study the phenomena that arise. In some cases, we will be able to suggest what courses of action should be taken by the players. In others, we hope simply to be able to understand what is happening in order to make better predictions about the future.

Lecture notes from a game-theory course the author taught to students in their second year of the economics PhD program. The material is also helpful to first-year PhD students learning game theory as part of their microeconomic-theory sequence.

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.
