Game Theory 101 Home

Game theory is the scientific study of strategically interdependent decision making. While logically demanding, this website makes learning the field easy. Based on the best-selling Game Theory 101 textbook, my video lectures go at your pace, carefully explaining all the important points you need to know to understand this new language.

If you are new, click here for the full list of lessons. The lectures cover all of the key elements in most semester-long game theory courses, including: strict dominance, weak dominance, Nash equilibrium, mixed strategies, subgame perfect equilibrium, backward induction, expected utility theory, repeated games, Bayesian Nash equilibrium, perfect Bayesian equilibrium, and signaling games.

Once you have mastered introductory game theory, consider learning about its applications or delving deeper into its mechanics with one of my other classes: International Relations 101, Logic 101, and Bargaining 101.
