Hi all

I am doing my Masters in Economics. Game theory is among the optional modules that I can select. Although my undergraduate degree was in Economics (Bachelor of Science), I did not do any exclusive courses on game theory during those years, only touching upon some of its concepts during the intermediate microeconomic theory and industrial organization courses.

I was wondering what kind of preparation in maths does one need to have before he/she can embark upon Game Theory at a graduate level. The mathematics that I do know basically covers Alpha Chiang's "Fundamentals Methods of Mathematical Economics". I am also acquainted with basic topology. Not enough?
