Ideal for social science courses in game theory and research methods, Introduction to Game Theory: A Behavioral Approach explains basic game theory concepts--up to and including Bayesian Nash equilibrium--using results from laboratory experiments that examine how real people behave in standard modeled games. Working from the premise that the crux of game theory lies in thinking logically about a problem and formulating research questions based on theory, author Kenneth C. Williams takes a nontechnical, behavioral approach that is accessible to students with minimal math skills.
Incorporating a wide range of experiments with diverse designs, Introduction to Game Theory is also enhanced by numerous pedagogical features:
* Extensive problem sets, in-class experiments, and sample exams
* Numerical examples for all of the exercises
* Key terms and concepts for behavioral game theory--which differ from those for standard game theory--and a glossary
* Supplemental lecture material and Internet resources--online games, videos, lectures, problems sets, exams, and experiments that students can participate in
