ZiF Workshop

Equilibria in Markets, Strategic Interactions, and Complex Systems

Date: 16 – 19 July 2019
Convenors: Giorgio Ferrari (Bielefeld, GER), Frank Riedel (Bielefeld, GER), Jacco Thijssen (York, GBR)

The notion of equilibrium as a balanced state of opposing forces or interactions occurs in slightly different, yet related forms in Biology, Economics, Physics, and Business Administration. This workshop aims at bringing together economic theorists, management scientists, mathematicians, and statistical physicists to discuss the different approaches to "equilibrium" arising in financial markets, games, complex systems, and time-inconsistent optimization problems. In particular, we intend to discuss recent advances in:

  • General equilibrium theory
  • Games of control and stopping, and their applications
  • Time-inconsistent optimal stochastic control and stopping problems
  • The role of heterogeneous agents in complex systems dynamics
