## Module content and teaching

###### Principal aims

Mathematical Economics 1a, “Introduction to Game Theory”, aims to provide a basic understanding of pure game theory and also introduce the student to a number of applications of game theory to economic problems of resource allocation.

###### Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to understand the importance of strategic considerations in economic problem solving and the normative significance of competitive markets in obtaining Pareto optimal allocations via appropriate extensions of the commodity space. Learn that a few simple, intuitive principles, formulated precisely, can go a long way in understanding the fundamental aspects of many economic problems.

###### Timetabled teaching activities

20 Lecture hours and 5 Support and Feedback classes.
