Seminar/Reading Group - Optimal Transport and Mechanism Design
Time and Place: Tuesday 10-12 am, SR 1.007 EA 60
Topic: We aim to explore connections between Optimal Transport and Mechanism Desing. To this end we start with a 4 weeks mini course on Optimal Transport followed by another 4 weeks mini course on Mechanism Design. Building on this we will explore and discuss the existing literature at the intersection of these two quickly developing fields.
Anyone interested is most welcome to attend. Feel free to either directly come to the meetings or send a mail to one of the organizers.
Literature (to be extended):
Basics and Background Reading:
- Optimal transport methods in Economics, Alfred Galichon
- Optimal transport for applied mathematicians, Filippo Santambrogio
- An Introduction to the Theory of Mechanism Design, Tilman Börgers
