Game theory is the study of mathematical models of interactions between individuals, their possible strategies or behaviours and the outcomes of those strategies. Game theory has many applications in real life including in economics, evolution, psychology and Christmas present buying. In this talk I will look at how we can represent a game mathematically and how we solve that game in the context of some real life examples.
