### Description

Game theory is conceivable as the study of mathematical models of
conflict and cooperation between intelligent rational decision-makers.
Although from this definition it may appear that game theory has only
applications in the social sciences, it does have interesting applications
in computer science. And on the other hand computational methods have been
successfully applied in game theoretic questions.
This course offers an introduction into classical game theory by
highlightling crucial results from algorithm game theory.
