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).
