Mini Course: An Introduction to Strategic Communication
In this 3-hours mini-course, open to all who are interested, Professor Navin Kartik will discuss a few classic and frontier game-theoretic models of information transmission and strategic communication. Coverage will include cheap talk, costly misrepresentation, and information design. The presentation will aim to provide a combination of formal arguments and intuitions.
