AbstractIn many important economic situations, decision makers influence each other. The subject of game theory offers a mathematical framework to describe such strategic interaction. This dissertation focuses largely on helping to answering the question,"What will someone do in a particular strategic situation?" In order to do this, it is useful to interweave theory with experimentation. After all, observation of what people really do is a necessity when attempting to create models of what people really do. At the same time, theory can help significantly when formulating interesting hypotheses to test. The chapters in my dissertation illustrate this interweaving of theory and experiments.
