Introduction to Game Theory

A Behavioral Approach

Kenneth C. Williams

Ideal for social science courses in game theory and research methods, Introduction to Game Theory: A Behavioral Approach explains basic game theory concepts--up to and including Bayesian Nash equilibrium--using results from laboratory experiments that examine how real people behave in standard modeled games. Author Kenneth C. Williams takes a nontechnical, behavioral approach that is accessible to students with minimal math skills. The text is enhanced by numerous pedagogical features including extensive problem sets, in-class experiments, and sample exams; numerical examples for all of the exercises; key terms and concepts; and a glossary.
