Evolutionary Game Theory

This course covers the emerging theory of evolutionary games, including replicator and other dynamics, and applications in biology, social science and computer science.

The course is designed for graduate students in Biology, Mathematics, Engineering and Economics. This year it will meet jointly with Econ/Cmps/Bio 166b, an advanced undergraduate class in game theory. The joint class is open to well-prepared undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines. Prior knowledge of probability theory and upper division calculus is assumed.

There will weekly homework assignments and one midterm exam. Students are expected to form interdisciplinary groups that will take turns writing up notes from the lectures. Each group will develop a term project to be presented to the class orally and in a final paper
