About

The subject of Game Theory is central to the mathematical modeling of the economic situations of conflict and cooperation. The HSE’s Game Theory and Decision Making laboratory aims to develop new bridges between the models of non-cooperative behavior, and the normative concept of cooperation and fair division, in particular in their algorithmic and asymptotic dimensions.

Key areas of research:

  • Mechanism design and developing new applications for specific resource allocation problems (cost and/or surplus-sharing).
  • Defining new equilibrium concepts in cooperative game theory which analyzes the interaction of players forming and breaking alliances by public and/or secret agreements.
  • Analyzing informational effects for dynamic games.
  • Developing algorithmic game theory, poised to estimate the complexity of finding equilibrium outcomes.
  • Investigating asymptotic properties of large games.

During the period from 2017 to 2019 research fellows of the laboratory published 50 articles, half of them in journals indexed Q1-Q2 at Scopus and Web of Science, including Econometrica, Journal of Economic Theory, Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, Games and Economic Behavior, ACM Economics and Computation, Advances in Mathematics, Economic Theory, International Journal of Game Theory, Public Choice, Social Choice and Welfare, European Journal of Mathematics, Operations Research. We regularly present our results at the best international conferences within our fields of interest such as Society for Social Choice and Welfare, Society for Economic Design, Society for Advancement of Economic Theory, Game Theory Conference at Stony Brook, EEA-ESEM, ACM Economics and Computation.

Each year we host an international conference and a summer school on topics in game theory and mechanism design. Since September 2019 the laboratory has initiated the regular research seminar together with the European University at St. Petersburg and the Steklov Mathematical Institute (PDMI RAS).
