|Title||Advanced Topics in Computer Science: Computational Game Theory and Economics (F2008)|
Computational game theory and economics is an emerging yet quickly developing area at the interface of computer science and economics. The area seeks to build on classical results in game theory to provide practical models and effective algorithms better suited to study and solve problems in large complex systems in modern society. Of major interest are compact models and efficient algorithms to understand and predict the complex global behavior that emerges from local interactions. Auctions, the Internet, social networks, computational biology, and interdependent security are some example application domains.
