General description

It all started with von Neumann and Morgenstern half a century ago. Their "Theory of Games and Economic Behavior" gave birth to a whole new area of mathematics. Game theoretic concepts and multi-agent simulations are now being successfully employed by many modern scientific disciplines like biology, computer sciences, economics, historical research, mathematics, physics, sociology, etc. and have led to a wide range of new insights.

During these two weeks you will be introduced to present social and socio-economic situations, computational simulations and experiments in addition to the basic game theoretic concepts. However, attendance makes sense for students of almost all disciplines, as one of the goals of the course is to become acquainted with a new point of view on situations of strategic interaction between individuals, i.e. to understand that almost every situation of individual interaction is strategic.

So get ready for two weeks filled with dilemma (sleep or party?), socio-economic situations and the BEST participants and let Vienna's flare overwhelm you just as it has been doing it for centuries!

Join us and let us, BEST Vienna, show you our strategy to work hard, party harder!
