Lecture Details :
We finish off our brief introduction to the element of surprise via mixed strategies by showing how mixed strategy Nash Equilibria can be found in in other 2x2 games. Then we start a new topic : games of imperfect and asymmetric information. Here, uncertainty remains a key feature, but different agent's have different uncertainties, or put another way, different agent's have different bits of private information that might be relevant to the game. We set up a venture captialist example from Kreps' Microeconomics for Managers in the latter half of this lecture (for this and the next lecture); 2008 does a better job on this topic.
Original mp4's of this video and other resources related to the lectures from my introductory game theory course at the University of Canterbury , Econ 223, can be obtained at http://uctv.canterbury.ac.nz/modules/journal/journalview.php?space_key=4&module_key=135&link_key=139&group_key=0
You'll also find the 2008 lectures - better in some respect - but only 16 out of 22 are edited.
