Very beautiful course, high level, 'russian' style I love. Particularly enjoyable after other introductory courses on GT. Not easy, but W1 to W4 are not that difficult and, jointly with a little part of W5, cover the syllabus of the typical GT course. W5 introduces the interesting notion of time consistency of the equilibrium solutions of games, that is quite an advanced issue typically not presented in other GT courses. W6 is about differential games and definitely this argument deserves a full course on itself to be fully understood and above all to learn how to solve this class of games. W6 lays on similarity with the previous approaches to give the idea of the results, but fails to transmit a practical solution tool. My idea is that W5 should have been expanded in two weeks and W6 should have been expanded into a full new course. But I cannot ask more to Petrosyan, he was extremely clear and precise in any point.

This is a very in-depth course. Many problems require reading given additional resources that are very math-heavy (this is coming from someone who's got a BSc in electrical engineering). There's barely any activity in the discussion forums and if you get stuck you will find that you need to figure things out on your own. I'm guessing these are the main reasons this course has a poor grade - it takes actual work to finish and understand it. The ending week was quite challenging when it comes to math - it just dives into many complex and advanced math topics and that might be hard for those who have no previous experience with things such as advanced control theory, functional equations, and so on.
All in all, I really loved this course. I actually liked that there was no dumbing down of things and the fact that you are not spoon-fed information.

It is a wonderful course, very interesting. I like it so much. While it is a little tough for students not majoring in mathematics. Thanks for all efforts of all professors for this course.

Excellent, first-hand contents. The quizzes, though, leave to be desired.
