Game Theory - IB Extended Essay

Hello everybody,
as part of my IB diploma program I need to write an essay of about 4000 words. I was stupid enough to do it in mathematics, game theory.
anyway I now need an real live situation to analyze. as I don't have a lot of knowledge about this topic, it should be a quite simple situation. it should be an two-person, non-zero sum game, having an nash equilibrium and it should be related to economics (oligopolies, market share, behavior of firms or something like that).
It would be really great if somebody could help me out here.
It is really urgent!!!!!

Re: Game Theory - IB Extended Essay

just a few comments/ideas (I am sure others will have suggestions)
Here is a relatively new CRC book, Grey Game Theory and Its Applications in Economic Decision-Making , ISBN 9781420087390

To me, interesting areas could include negotiations, something along the idea of recent events, where an industry is in duress, and the workers/union are being asked to consider concessions. Or considering a potential merger, how should workers act knowing that such mergers lead to job layoffs, but the new company and remaining workers are better positioned? Another example might be competitive college admissions (how universities should act as regards early admission, selectivity). Another area might be coalitions for voting in legislatures (moderates joining/opposing left/right to further their own agendas)

Heh; I made the mistake of choosing combinatorial game theory and surreal numbers-- which was probably stupider.
Anyway, you may want to look at the "main" thing that Milton Friedman did to win the Nobel Prize in Economics-- it is game theoretic, and there is definitely an equilibrium, but I'm not sure if it has a Nash Equilibrium; my game theory knowledge is weak.

Well, I'm not sure going to writing services could be the best option. You can do the work yourself and if you are still not sure then you can try it out. Actually, once I tried it but just to edit my paper by AceWriters. Well the work was done pretty ok but I think if I had time I could have done the same job on that assignment. So, if you are in a dead end, ad=nd rather than giving up, using writing services could be an ok choice but if there is a ton of other options, first try all those and if nothing works, you know where you can go.

If you're looking to do some exhaustive algebraic studies, then i suggest getting a textbook, and studying from there.

What sort of math are you confident with currently (in order to provide a better suggestion for a textbook)?

P.S., Don't hesitate to post a new thread for your questions. This sort of question could go under the Algebra sub-forum .
