I am an undergrad going into my junior year this semester. I really wanted to explore algorithmic game theory, as my university has some excellent professors in that field. However, as my undergrad is drawing to a close, it is seeming increasingly likely that I will not be able to do this in my undergrad if I don't step up and teach myself the basics. However, looking online, I am unable to find anything "basic" for intro students to the subject. Would you have any recommendations on how to start learning algorithmic game theory?

  • $\begingroup$ Learn game theory first. Like economic game theory, Nash equilibria, etc. $\endgroup$ – JimN Sep 9 '20 at 10:04
  • $\begingroup$ You can find some lecture notes here: ml2.inf.ethz.ch/courses/agt I took the course and if I remember correctly there weren't too many prerequisites, although I did have some familiarity with game theory. The lecture notes are a bit sparse, so I recommend using them as a study guide and looking for complementary material on the same topics as you go along. $\endgroup$ – Tassle Feb 25 at 20:58

You could: Try some online classes/tutorials, e.g., on YouTube, read textbooks recommended by university classes (at your level), or buy the highest ranked textbooks on Amazon.
