Starting as of 1992, an annual introductory course on Game Theory has been taught to mathematics undergraduate students under the supervision of Theo Driessen. The lecture note book consisted of two chapters, one about non-cooperative game theory (in particular, Nash equilibria for the mixed extension of a finite bimatrix-game), the other about cooperative game theory (in particular, the Shapley value and the core for general and special classes of transferable utility n-person games). As of 2003, a third chapter about stochastic games has been added, taught annually by Judith Vink-Timmer. Nowadays the master course "Game Theory (152180)" is taught annually in English.
The last five years the so-called UT-master class on Game Theory entitled NIM-game has been educated to secondary school pupils visiting the university campus for eight consecutive meetings of three hours each.
For various interesting links to game theoretic topics, it is recommended to consult the website of Judith Vink-Timmer or the website of the game theory society
