Workshop on New Directions in the Theory of Markets and Games
October 19 - 23, 1995
The conference is in honour of Robert J. Aumann, and in recognition of his contributions to mathematics, game theory, and economics
Recently there has been a burgeoning of theries of market equilibrium, including strategic models of market-place formation and market structure, evolutionary theories, and theories of the formation of groups for the realization of strategic and economic advantages. These theories inextricably connect markets and games. The conference and workshop will focus on such new directions, including, but not limited to:
(1) Strategic interactions between pairs of individuals and within small groups, using evolutionary, learning, and full rationality approaches (such as the theory of repeated games of incomplete information) and resulting aggregate socio-economic outcomes.
(2) Cooperative and non-cooperative large games and the relationship of cooperative equilibrium, fully rational equilibrium, and evolutionarily stable outcomes to market-like outcomes.
(3) Strategic information sharing, learning, and group formation in economic and game-theoretic models of situations with many participants, where individual participants are negligible relative to economic out comes.
(4) Markets and their game-theoretic aspects, including financial markets with externalities.
