November 2012 Acknowledgements Writing a dissertation is an exciting process with many ups, but also a few occasional downs which are easier to circumvent with the support of others. I am particularly grateful to my supervisor Joachim Winter, not only for his advice on the thesis and the fruitful collaboration in research projects, but also for the open and motivating atmosphere at his chair. I am also grateful to Martin Kocher who has been an excellent teacher of experimental methodology and a valuable source of advice. Furthermore, I would like to thank my co-authors Florian Heiss and Daniel McFadden for the interesting and enriching experience of working together with them. Special thanks goes to Daniel Houser, who made it possible that I could visit ICES at George Mason University for a few months while we were working on our paper, and was a great host. I would also like to thank Sebastian Strasser for sharing his z-tree knowledge with me, and the team of MELESSA for valuable assistance while conducting experiments. During the time of writing the dissertation I had the fortune of meeting numerous colleagues who have become friends, especially among the members of Joachim Winter’s chair and my fellow MGSE students. Finally, I would like to thank my parents and grandparents for their support, and especially Lorena. i Contents Preface ............................................
