Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in computer science intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.
This course introduces students to the field of social choice theory and analysis of multi-agent systems. At a high-level, we cover the theoretical foundations of collective decision making in numerous systems that involve a set of agents with heterogeneous preferences. This will involve topics in voting theory, fair-division (discrete and continuous), markets, preference elicitation, and stable matchings. We will also discuss concepts and algorithmic results that lie at the intersection of all the aforementioned topics. It is strongly suggested that students have the prerequisite course of CS 473.
