Game Theory & Math Economics: Sergiu Hart - "Too Much Two Good To Be True: The Complexity of Auctions"

4:00pm to 6:00pm

Location: 

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

We consider the problem of maximizing the revenue from selling a number of goods (or items). In this talk we will focus on approximation results and on the "menu-size" as a measure of auction complexity which affects the revenue. * All the relevant concepts will be introduced in the talk.* The talk is mostly independent of the talk given earlier this year.

Game Theory & Math Economics: Philip J. Reny (University of Chicago) - "Sequential Equilibria of Multi-Stage Games with Infinite Sets of Types and Actions," (joint work with Roger Myerson)

4:00pm to 6:00pm

Location: 

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

Guided by several key examples, we formulate a definition of essential sequential equilibrium for multi-stage games with infinite type sets and infinite action sets, and we prove its general existence.
