S6952: What's the Right Price of Two Dice? in Splash Spring 2019 (May. 04 - 05, 2019)
Let's play a game. You roll a die, I roll a die, and we keep what we each got a secret. Now let's run an auction on the two dice. We both submit bids, and the person with the highest bid gets a score equal to the sum of the two dice minus his or her bid. What's the best strategy for playing this game? In this class we're going to dive into the math and economics behind this game and explore concepts like "Nash Equilibrium" and "Common Value Auction" and see how this knowledge guides the strategies companies use when bidding over natural resource rights.
