Title: Introduction to Interactive Epistemology
Date: 12 January 2006
Time: 16:00
Location: P-3.27, Euclides building, Plantage Muidergracht 24, Amsterdam

Interactive epistemology is the study of the role of players' uncertainty in a game-theoretic situation. We will introduce some of the mathematical models which have been used by game theorists to represent this uncertainty. The talk will focus on type spaces, introduced by John Harsanyi in 1967. In particular, we will disucss the existence of a "universal" type space and the epistemic foundations of various solution concepts. To that end, the talk will be based on a recent survey by Adam Brandenburger which can be found below: http://pages.stern.nyu.edu/%7Eabranden/pop-09-29-05.pdf
