TOP REVIEWS FROM WELCOME TO GAME THEORY
Very good course for initial understanding of Game theory. The course structure can be improved to practice more payoff diagrams which appear in the quizzes.
It is a detailed and very informative course on game theory and nash equilibrium. Professor Michihiro Kandori explains every aspect of the topic and the quizzes are perfect.
I really enjoy how Kandori focused on the concepts without bogging us down with too much math. I also enjoyed seeing how many areas of life game theory could be applied to.
It actually took sometime to me to complete this course. However it was a great learning experience for me. I think it will help me in future to pursue my career.
