Special Issue on Game Theory and Economic Behavior
Game theory is a bag of analytical tools designed to help us understand the phenomena that we observe when decision-makers interact. The basic assumptions that underlie the theory are that decision-makers pursue well-defined exogenous objectives and take into account their knowledge or expectations of other decision-makers’ behaviors.
Game theory has been used to study a large collection of economic behaviors, such as auctions, bargaining, mergers & acquisitions pricing, fair division, duopolies, oligopolies, social network formation, agent-based computational economics, general equilibrium, mechanism design, and voting systems, and across such broad areas as experimental economics, behavioral economics, information economics, industrial organization, and political economy. The issue on “Game Theory and Economic Behavior” will be focusing on the latest development in theories, applications and experiments related to game theory.
In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring Game Theory and Economic Behavior.
Authors should read over the journal’s Author’s Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Paper Submission System.
Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue’’ under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue —Game Theory and Economic Behavior” should be chosen during your submission.
According to the following timetable:
