Minisymposium (ID: SS-DG)

Decision and Games

Organizers: D. Marc Kilgour (Wilfrid Laurier University) and Marcus Pivato (Trent University)

Which course of action is best? What is a decision-maker*s rational choice? For deterministic problems with a clear objective, this question can be answered using optimization. In a setting of uncertainty, however, is the province of the subjective expected utility theory of Ramsey, de Finetti, and Savage, which has been extended to deal with ambiguity, multiple objectives, multiple attributes, and intertemporal decisions. But strategic uncertainty, resulting from the presence of other decision-makers with their own options and objectives, was recognized by von Neumann and Morgenstern to require new methods. Game theory, their system to model strategic interaction, was augmented by contributions from Nash, Harsanyi, Aumann, and many others, and has now revolutionized economics and made substantial impacts in political science and other social sciences. This session will feature new applications of mathematics that are inspired by attempts to understand decisions and games
