In many organizations in the private and the public sectors, there is a need to support complex decisions that include a game-theoretic aspect. These decisions impact activities ranging from tactical to strategic, and play out in a number of problems, including monitoring and management of ongoing operations, the dynamics of organizational relationships in the competitive environment, and military force planning. This course extends treatment of game theoretic concepts and constructs, and explores their implementation and application, highlighting key issues such as decision space exploration and analysis, visualization, and the creation and use of models for specific domains. Students will have the opportunity to design a course project based on their area of professional or personal interest.
