Chair in Game Theory and Management

The Chair’s research program focuses on theoretical and algorithmic developments of game theory and its applications to management issues.

The theoretical and algorithmic component aims to:

  • Design strategies that promote cooperation among agents which, in principle, have different or even conflicting objectives;
  • Develop mechanisms to ensure dynamic coherence and other forms of durability of cooperative solutions;
  • Extend these strategies and mechanisms to a stochastic framework;
  • Create algorithms to compute non-cooperative game equilibrium in a dynamic context.

Applications focus on various management issues, mainly in marketing, energy and the environment, such as:

  • Conflicts and cooperation in marketing distribution networks;
  • Designing marketing strategies in oligopolistic markets;
  • Sharing of environmental costs;
  • Coordinating environmental strategies in an international context;
  • Coordination in supply chains and the marketing-production interface;
  • Electronic commerce, including its implications on relationships in traditional distribution channels.
