This course covers reasoning, decision making, and behavioral game theory, which are major domains in human higher order cognition. Each topic begins with normative theories and continues through formal and mathematical models, and the introduction of empirical studies. The course emphasizes integrations of competing approaches within a domain, integration between reasoning and decision making, and integration between individual decision making and game-theoretic interactions. Each year, the course has a theme. The theme for this year is quantum cognition, which applies quantum theory in cognitive modeling. This course is designed as self-contained, and has no prerequisites. A middle term presentation and a final term paper are required for each student. Graduate students only.

When Offered: Fall term annually.
