Game Theory is centred around mathematical models of conflict and cooperation. It plays an increasingly important role in many branches of science, such as Economics, Biology, Computer Science, Psychology, Political Science, Law and Medicine. The societal relevance of Game Theory is also illustrated by the fact that quite a few game theorists have been awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics, like 'beautiful mind’ John Nash in 1994. Nearly everyone has heard of the Prisoners' Dilemma, but what is really the issue? In these lectures, we introduce the basic concepts and examine several branches of this exciting field.
