It will show how microeconomic theory applies to the design of algorithms, and conversely, how algorithmic thinking applies to economics. Other topics may include game theory, mechanism design / auction theory, forecasting mechanisms, and voting / social choice theory. Recommended prerequisite: CSCI 5454.
