Mathematics for decision making

Additional Info

  • ECTS credits: 6
  • Semester: 3
  • University: University of L'Aquila
  • Objectives:


    The goal of this course is to describe some mathematical models of strategic interaction among rational decision-makers.

    We provide knowledge of the main mathematical tools of nonlinear and set-valued analysis which are crucial for studying the existence and the stability of the solutions of particular equilibrium problems such as variational and quasi-variational inequalities and non-cooperative games.

  • Topics:


    We cover aspects of pure mathematics such as continuity notions and fixed point theorems for set-valued maps (Browder, Kakutani, Fan-Glicksberg) and we study the the existence of solutions for problems arising in behavioral and social science, among which Nash equilibria and Ky Fan minimax inequalities.
