This course in Game Theory has treated a variety of topics. It will be helpful to me if you would rank these topics from the point of view of your finding them valuable/useful as someone interested in Mathematics Education.

Here are the SEVEN major topics we covered topics (in no particular order):

V = voting and elections

Z = two person zero-Sum games

GS =two-sided markets (Gale-Shapley algorithm)

NZ = two person non-zero-sum games

B = bankruptcy problems

A = apportionment problems

W = weighted voting games and power indices

Please rank these topics with ties allowed (indifference is allowed) but NO truncation (your ballot should include all 7 topics), and using the Duncan Black style of ordinal ballot (upward pointing arrow, with the choices displayed along the arrow, higher positions for more preferred topics).

Thanks! (No names, secret ballots, please.)
