# Game Theory & Math Economics: Svetlana Boyarchenko (University of Texas) - "Strategic Experimentation with Erlang Bandits"

4:00pm to 5:00pm

## Location:

Elath Hall, 2nd floor, Feldman Building, Edmond J. Safra Campus

Risks related to events that arrive randomly play important role in many real life decisions, and models of learning and experimentation based on two-armed Poisson bandits addressed several important aspects related to strategic and motivational learning in cases when events arrive at jumps times of the standard Poisson process. At the same time, these models remain mostly abstract theoretical models with few direct economic applications.
