DESCRIPTION:Interactive epistemology is the study
of the role of players' uncertainty in a game-theo
retic situation. We will introduce some of the mat
hematical models which have been used by game theo
rists to represent this uncertainty. The talk will
focus on type spaces, introduced by John Harsanyi
in 1967. In particular, we will disucss the exist
ence 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
