Title: Game Theory and Applications

Directors: Jan Rychtar, Hyunju Oh

Dates of Program: May 19 - Julne 27, 2014

Summary:

Our students will be introduced to the fundamental game-theoretical concepts (Nash equilibrium and evolutionarily stable strategy) and taught how to use computational and analytical tools to identify such strategies in models with applications in biology and/or medicine (cat vaccination to prevent Toxoplasmosis infection or bed-net use to prevent malaria). The students will be trained in all aspects of research, starting with the ethics code, going through workshops on using library and online resources and ending with training in delivering oral presentations as well as in using LaTeX to write mathematical papers.
