Teaching Areas Top

  • Game Theory and Economic Applications (EC3312, undergraduate):
    • I use R. Gibbons, Game Theory for Applied Economists (or A Primer in Game Theory).
  • Mathematical Economics (a.k.a. Math Camp) (EC5104/5104R, PhD/undergraduate)
  • Advanced Topics in Economics (EC6880, PhD):
    • In AY2013/2014, I taught the basics of repeated games; send me an email if you want the TeX file.
