# Undergraduate Game Theory - PS/Ec 172 - Spring 2023

**Instructor.** Omer
Tamuz. Office hours are Mondays 10 to 11, in Baxter 213. Students are
strongly encouraged to meet the instructor for help with any
of the
assignments. Piazza is a good place to post questions that may interest
others. Send the instructor an email if you are not
automatically enrolled there.

**Teaching assistants. Locations of office hours TBD.**

**Lectures.** Lectures will be held in person in Baxter Lecture Hall on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1pm.

**Lecture notes.**
Complete lecture
notes are available for this course. Note that this is not a
textbook, but the actual notes used to give the lectures. A part
of them is based on Osborne and Rubinstein, which is an excellent
textbook. It is not, however, required for the class.

**Curriculum.** The curriculum can be found in the table of
contents of
the
lecture notes.

**Grading.** The final grade will consist of 70% homework
assignments, and 30% final exam.

**Problem sets.** There will be six problem sets given during
the term. They are due every Friday by 11:59pm, and are to be
submitted on Gradescope. Collaboration on homework is encouraged,
but individually written solutions are required. Also, please name
all collaborators and sources of information on each assignment;
any such named source may be used. And
don't plagiarize!
Students will have a chance to **resubmit** their
graded assignments, provided a good faith effort was made to
solve them in the first submission. Full credit will be given to
correct resubmissions. This is an experimental policy that we are
trying out this term, so please be patient as we might need to
tweak it.

**Late submissions:** Each student is entitled to one
late submission, no questions asked. This is meant to accomodate
medical issues, family issues etc. Please email the instructor
if you would like to submit more than one assignment late. Late
submissions will only be accepted until 1pm the Monday
after the assignment is due.

**Final.** The final exam is due at
1pm on June 9^{th} for seniors, and 1pm on June
16^{th} for the rest. The instructions are as
follows:

"Please take at most four hours to complete this
exam. Collaboration is not allowed, except on the bonus question,
which you can discuss with others, given that this discussion
takes place in public conversations on Piazza. Also, there is no
time limit for completing the bonus question, and you can read it
(on this page, below) before starting the four hour clock.
You may consult the lecture notes, your own notes or any textbook, but
not solutions to previous exams. There is no need to prove any
statements that you make. "

*Bonus question.* Choose an integer between 0
and 10, equal to the number of bonus points you would like to have.
If the average number of points asked by the students taking this
exam is strictly less than 4, then you will get the number of points
you asked for. Otherwise you will get no points. Note: bonus points
will be added * after* any curving. Averages will be taken
separately for seniors and non-seniors.
