An introduction to Game Theory and its Economic Applications.
Aim of the course -
Last update: prof. Ing. Karel Janda, Dr., Ph.D., M.A. (11.02.2018)

The course provides a graduate level introduction to game theory and its applications to the industrial organization. After completion of the course the students will become familiar with concepts of Nash equilibrium, Subgame Perfect Nash equilibrium, Bayesian Nash equilibrium and their applications.

Requirements to the exam -
Last update: SCHNELLEROVA (18.11.2019)

The students are evaluated according to written exams. There will be 4 exams available to take for this class. 2 exams with highest score will determine your score. Each of these two exams may give you up to 50 points. So totally you may obtain up to 100 points.

The thresholds for the grades are as follows:

 A: 90+ to 100

 B: 80+ to 90

 C: 70+ to 80

 D: 60+ to 70

 E: 50+ to 60

 F: 50 or less

Therefore, borderline results are assigned the lower grade (e.g., 90 is B).

Cheating or other academic dishonesty during exam implies 0 for a particular exam and 10 points taken away from total in the case of slight dishonesty (20 points in the case of serious dishonesty). Any communication among the students during the exam is considered as cheating. Therefore during the exam communicate only with the exam supervisor. You may take watch and simple calculator for exams. Do not take any mobile phones or any other electronic devices for exams.
