Mini-courses will be offered by S. Cappell, G. Chichilnisky and M.
Hirsch. There will also be a number of invited lectures and other presentations.
Recent developments have deepened the connection between topology and
the economics of markets. This workshop will allow the presentation
and discussion of original mathematical results, which have or could
lead to useful application in the economics of markets. The first three
days of the workshop will be devoted to a series of mini\courses in
mathematics aimed at providing the basic background. The remaining time
will allow the presentation of new theorems, along with their applications
to the theory of markets. Topics discussed will include: new topological
invariants for existence, characterization and computation of market
equilibria and their relation to social choice and to other forms of
resource allocation, competitive and cooperative systems, algebraic
geometry and markets with increasing returns, computation complexity,
and stochastic processes and financial markets.
