Hey guys, it's been long since I write. Well, today I actually have nothing much to say rather just to share a good website. I've been following a class on Game Theory by Professor Yoav Shoam and Matthew Jackson, both of Stanford University, on Coursera.org - a website that organizes free courses. It was great. Not only u can watch and listen to the lecture, there's even lab for the topics, exercises, and study group that has been conducted by the lecturers. Hey, I've got no chance to join Stanford, why would I miss at least learning to some of their professors, right? And this is a good website for those who are willing to learn but did not have much opportunity to learn what they want to. I mean, I'm in Jordan - to join different classes of my interest than medical classes - require me good grasp of Arabic language. I need to know all the terms in Arabic, because in my uni, lecturers talk in Arabic. So, not medical (which is taught in English)? Little hard as I need to widen my vocabulary first before I can widen my knowledge. So guys, check the website out! They have number of courses lined up. You may like one. Oh yeah, forgot to tell you that, in the end of the Game Theory course, they have had final exams, and those who passed (above 70) got electronic certificate for the course. Oh well, I did not take the exam yet as I myself did not finish the course yet.  :)

https://www.coursera.org/course/gametheory is the page for Game Theory course.

Oh yeah, Game Theory is not theory of gaming - online gaming or PES or FIFA or Tekken whatsoever. It rather is mathematical modeling of strategic interaction among rational and irrational agents - beyon what we call games in common language - it includes politics, stock market, nature interaction, everything. I mean everything. Have u watched A Beautiful Mind movie? Yeah, that genius John Nash guy was working on this theory.
