Goals
Participants learn the analytical tools to model and analyse individual and strategic decision problems.
Description
The course introduces the tools which are necessary to model and analyse individual and strategic decisions. Thereby we do not only introduce the canonical theories but also add some non-standard behavioural approaches. In the first part we treat individual decisions (decision theory), in the second part we deal with strategic decisions (game theory).
