スタンフォード大学(Stanford University) による Game Theory II: Advanced Applications の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



Popularized by movies such as "A Beautiful Mind", game theory is the mathematical modeling of strategic interaction among rational (and irrational) agents. Over four weeks of lectures, this advanced course considers how to design interactions between agents in order to achieve good social outcomes. Three main topics are covered: social choice theory (i.e., collective decision making and voting systems), mechanism design, and auctions. In the first week we consider the problem of aggregating different agents' preferences, discussing voting rules and the challenges faced in collective decision making. We present some of the most important theoretical results in the area: notably, Arrow's Theorem, which proves that there is no "perfect" voting system, and also the Gibbard-Satterthwaite and Muller-Satterthwaite Theorems. We move on to consider the problem of making collective decisions when agents are self interested and can strategically misreport their preferences. We explain "mechanism design" -- a broad framework for designing interactions between self-interested agents -- and give some key theoretical results. Our third week focuses on the problem of designing mechanisms to maximize aggregate happiness across agents, and presents the powerful family of Vickrey-Clarke-Groves mechanisms. The course wraps up with a fourth week that considers the problem of allocating scarce resources among self-interested agents, and that provides an introduction to auction theory. You can find a full syllabus and description of the course here: There is also a predecessor course to this one, for those who want to learn or remind themselves of the basic concepts of game theory: An intro video can be found here:




This was a wonderful and very mathematically intensive course, but completing all the quizzes gave a great sense of accomplishment and developed my understanding of game theory and its various facets.



Very interesting! One missing thing: please write explanations for correct/incorrect questions in quizzes. In the basic course, I found them very helpful in understanding why my reasoning was wrong.

The subject is quite interesting, one of my favourites, if not my favourite, in economic theory. Both this and Game Theory I had concepts I din't previous knew, with didatic explanations.

Thank you for giving me excellent information on game theory. It is very helpful course for me. Thank you Stanford University,The University of British Columbia and Coursera.

Brilliant mind-teaser, helps you form skills that will lead to logical thinking in strategic interplays between everyday events and even the more complex one.

by Li W


Great, the Problem set very helpful to understand the core of Mechanism Design conception. Thanks the 3 professores 's instruction.

by Anders A


Solid through the entire course, good lectures and interesting tasks. Only missing a few explanations in some of the task.

by Bayu S T


I​ have been grateful to be part of both Game Theory I and II, thank you for all this was very helpful for my career

by Himanshu P


I learned strategic thinking and how to make applied that in real world with various Game Theory methods. Thanks

by Roger G


Excellent course, I wish it was longer to have more examples but very interesting and well taught material

by Lee S Y


Lectures were clear and quizzes were effective. Could have helped to explain solutions in the quiz though.

by Pablo P S


An excellent resource to learn Game Theory, I would say at a graduate level. This course helped me a lot!

by Bhavook B


Great learning experience, one advice is to show the working of the solutions of the problem sets

by Abhiraj H


Loved the course.It is a little on the hard side but is overall very enjoyable and enriching.

by Luis F A


Good intro to some applications of GT, particularly on auctions. A bit drier than part one.

by Kiryukhin R


perfect one to get a taste of theory behind the voting schemes and game mechanisms design

by Chusu H


A good step from basic game theory to more advanced theory and application in this field.

by Metin B


So much information given, in very compact but clear style, in short time. Great course

by Zhu


Fasinating course!!Comprehensible and lucid book also!Professor Jackerson is so cool!

by Mikhail K


Good course. And I like the teachers very much. But I woul like more on Game Theory.

by Dalia G V


¡Un curso muy entretenido! Me sirvió para expandir mis conocimientos en la materia.

by Hitesh K


Stimulating. Very interesting course, never loved the derivations this much before.

by תומר צ


Great course. I have learned a lot and very thankful for the wonderful instructors.

by Reza


this was a cool course. But not sure how I'll use the learnings in the future :)

by Jose A T C


I enjoyed a lot this course. The instructors are among the best worldwide.
