(Spanish acronym of Stochastic Differential Games: Breaking Fifty Years of the Paradigm)

Differential games provide very powerful models and methods for important problems in biology, security and business, among others. However, their solution relies on very strong common knowledge assumptions, and their stochastic version relies on assuming that the corresponding processes are known. This project develops concepts and models that should allow one to overcome current approaches to stochastic differential games by providing a new paradigm for stochastic differential games.

Keywords: Differential games; stochastic differential equations; Bayesian inference.

Scheduling dates: 01/05/2017-30/04/2019
