Algorithmic Game Theory

Vorlesung im Wintersemester 2022/2023

Many every-day processes can seen as a game between autonomous interacting players, where each player acts stategically in order to pursue her own objectives. This lecture is an introduction to game-theoretic concepts and techniques, mainly with connections to applications. Use-cases are distributed systems, auctions, online-markets, resource allocation, traffic routing, and sports. The goal of the lecture is to provide an overview over state-of-the-art results in the area of algorithmic game theory. Main topics that we will cover in the course are games in normal form, efficiency of equilibria, auctions, truthfulness and VCG-mechanisms, social choice, cake cutting, and cooperative games. The lectures and homework sheets will be in English language. If all participants agree, the exercise session could be held in German. If there is an oral exam, the language can be chosen by the candidate. In case of a written exam the questions will be in English, answering them in German or English is fine.
