Probability and Stochastic Analysis - University of Bonn

Seminar/Reading Group - Optimal Transport and Mechanism Design

Time and Place: Tuesday 10-12 am, SR 1.007 EA 60

Start: 17.10.2017

Organizer: Martin Huesmann and Martin Pollrich

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.
