Strategic interactions in multi-agent systems: Game-theoretic approach

Advanced Systems Analysis (ASA) Program researchers are advancing game theory approaches and applying them to the study of stylized models of social interactions.

ASA researchers apply the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation – the tool at the center of the theory of dynamic programming – to study dynamic games. In 2014 results on theoretical advances on so-called generalized mini-max solutions to non-zero-sum games of two large groups of agents interacting randomly with each other were published in [1] and [2]. The dynamical Nash equilibrium was introduced into the framework of closed-loop controls; the theoretical results help reveal new qualitative insights regarding the equilibrium trajectory in evolutionary games.
