Popularized by movies such as "A Beautiful Mind," game theory is the mathematical modeling of strategic interaction among rational (and irrational) agents. Beyond what we call `games' in common language, such as chess, poker, soccer, etc., it includes the modeling of conflict among nations, political campaigns, competition among firms, and trading behavior in markets such as the NYSE.

How could you begin to model keyword auctions, and peer to peer file-sharing networks, without accounting for the incentives of the people using them? The course will provide the basics: representing games and strategies, the extensive form (which computer scientists call game trees), Bayesian games (modeling things like auctions), repeated and stochastic games, and more. We'll include a variety of examples including classic games and a few applications.


You must be comfortable with mathematical thinking and rigorous arguments. Relatively little specific math is required; you should be familiar with basic probability theory (for example, you should know what a conditional probability is), and some very light calculus would be helpful.

Course Structure

The course consists of the following materials:

Videos. The lectures are delivered via videos, which are broken into small chunks, usually between five and fifteen minutes each. There will be about an hour and a half of video content per week. You may watch the lecture videos at your convenience. Lower-resolution videos are also available for those with slow internet connections. You can also find the videos on : our youtube channel
Slides. We have made available pdf files of all the lecture slides.
Ungraded Practice Quizzes. There will be non-graded short "quiz" questions that will follow some of the videos to help you gauge your understanding.
Online Lab Exercises. After some of the videos, we will ask you to go online to a specific url (that will be provided to you at that point) to play some games. These are entirely optional, and designed to illustrate some of the concepts from the course.
Graded Problem Sets. There will also be graded weekly problem sets that you will also answer online, but may work through offline . You may discuss problems from the problem sets with other students in an online forum, without providing explicit answers.
Final Exam. There will be an online final exam.
Suggested Readings

The following background readings provide more detailed coverage of the course material:

Essentials of Game Theory, by Kevin Leyton-Brown and Yoav Shoham; Morgan and Claypool Publishers, 2008. This book has the same structure as the course, and covers most of the same material. It is free if you access the link from a school that subscribes to the Morgan & Claypool Synthesis Lectures, and otherwise costs $9 to download, if you use the code: mooc2016. You can also get it as a printed book from (e.g.), or as an ebook for Kindle or Google devices.
A Brief Introduction to the Basics of Game Theory, by Matthew O. Jackson. These notes offer a quick introduction to the basics of game theory; they are available as a free PDF download.

Your grade in the course will be based solely on the problem sets (70 percent of your grade) and the final exam (30 percent of your grade).

You are free to follow the course without completing the problem sets or final, but then will not receive a certificate of completion.


If you have any questions, please do not contact the professors directly, as with over one hundred thousand of students it is infeasible for us to respond. The course includes on-line Q&A forums where students can post and respond to questions. This will go live in parallel with the first lectures. Students rank questions and answers, so that the most important questions and the best answers bubble to the top. TAs and the professors will periodically monitor these forums, so that important questions not answered by other students will be addressed.
