There are two components of assessment in this course:
- Individual coursework (25%)
- Exam (75%)
Write a 2 page (strict upper limit) report that illustrates an aspect of game theory using a programming language.
You are free to use any software you want.
- Scope 50%: Your understanding of the subject.
- Presentation 25% - How well written it is.
- Code 25% - Your use of code.
The choice of subject is yours, here are two potential general subjects:
Prove and illustrate a theorem from the notes (or otherwise); Model a real world scenario using game theory.
This will be a standard 3rd year Cardiff University, School of Mathematics exam: you will choose 3 questions from a collection of 4.
Each question will be out of 25 marks. This is to be seen to roughly correspond to:
- 10 marks covering aspects directly seen in the notes (prooving seen theorems, performing similar calculations;
- 10 marks extending things seen in the notes (proving similar theorems, considering particular games);
- 5 marks on unseen materials
A slight particularity of the course is that it is possible that you are asked questions about current contemporary research based on the papers discussed in http://vknight.org/gt/chapters/13/
