The target of this project is to introduce the basic concepts of Algorithmic Game Theory and implement a set of agents in the mobile devices. A the end of this project we will implement an Android Service that supports Game Theoretic functionalities.
Keywords: Game, Strategies, Payoffs, Nash Equilibrium, Coordination Game, Auctions, Mechanism Design, Shapley Value
week 1: Study the needed Game Theory Concepts from the material provided by the supervisor
week 2: Implement a simple Android application which will be installed in more than one mobile devices. The functionality of this application will be the message exchange between the devices.
week 3: Improvement of the application and implement a broadcast group functionality. (i.e whenever one device sent a message, all the other devices receive this message).
week 4: Implement a simple prisoner's dilemma application and a a cooperative prisoner's dilemma application.
week 5: Implement repeated games and Auctions
week 6: Sum Up of Android Applications, Implement a framework that supports all the above functionalities.
weeks 7 & 8: Extend the framework to adjust it in a research problem for a paper.
By the end of this project the student will be familiarized with the basic concepts of game theory and (s)he will understand the algorithmic issues of the area.
