Opis przedmiotu:

This course is devoted to computational aspects of decision making in the context of data being provided by strategic agents. The main topics that will be covered: * Noncooperative games: 1. strategies 2. Nash equilibria 3. computational complexity (class PPAD) * Cooperative games: 1. coalition forming 2. solution concepts * Decision mechanisms: 1. with money (e.g. auctions) 2. without money (e.g. elections) 3. fair division * Cost sharing mechanism * "price of anarchy" in the context of transportation networks The course contains elements of computational complexity, probability theory, and convex optimization. Some prior experience with these fields would be of help, but is not formally required. A large part of the course will follow the book: Nisan, Routhgardan, Tardos, Vazirani.
