Games have shown to provide a useful paradigm for reasoning about reactive systems. Not only can model-checking algorithms be formulated as games, but the interaction of reactive systems with their environments can also be modeled as a game. The aim of this course is to demonstrate the power of the game-theoretic approach, by showing how it gives rise to a unifying algorithmic framework through the use of tree automata as an underlying technical tool.

This essay gives a self-contained introduction to quantum game theory, and is primarily oriented to economists with little or no acquaintance with quantum mechanics. It assumes little more than a basic knowledge of vector algebra.

Lecture notes from a game-theory course the author taught to students in their second year of the economics PhD program. The material is also helpful to first-year PhD students learning game theory as part of their microeconomic-theory sequence.
