Intro to Formal Political Analysis (Grad Game Theory)

This course provides an introduction to game theory and its application to political science. It presupposes no technical background. We will cover basic game theory models and solution concepts, as well as how these methods are used specifically in political science, looking at applications to electoral competition, legislative bargaining, delegation to bureaucracy, and more.

Taught at the University of Texas at Austin in Spring 2023.
