New techniques for time dependent mean-field games by Prof. Diogo Aguiar Gomes (KAUST)

  • Class schedule:  Thursday, Sep. 11th,  2014, 12pm -13:00pm
  • Location: Building 9 Lecture Hall I Rm. 2322
  • Refreshments:  Pizza and soft drinks will be available at 11:45 am
In the present seminar, I will discuss some recent results on the regularity theory of mean-field games. This is a challenging problem with a number of delicate and complex estimates.  However, rather than discussing the mathematical technicalities involved in this project, I would like to talk about some of the lessons that I learned by completing it. I hope that by sharing this experience, I can help some of you in the process of writing your thesis or your first paper. 

Professor Diogo Gomes received his PhD in Mathematics from the University of California at Berkley in 2000, and was awarded a Habilitation in Mathematics from Universidade Tecnica de Lisboa in 2006. He did his postdoc at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton in 2000, and completed a second postdoc at the University of Texas at Austin in 2001. Before joining KAUST, Professor Gomes was a Professor in the Mathematics Department at the Instituto Superior Tecnico. Professor GomesĂ­s research interests are in partial differential equations (PDE), with a focus on viscosity solutions of elliptic, parabolic, and Hamilton-Jacobi equations, as well as in related mean-field models.  His research is driven directly or indirectly by concrete applications. These include population and crowd modeling, price formation and extended mean-field games. Professor Gomes is an Executive Editor of Portugaliae Mathematica and a member of the Editorial Board of Minimax Theory and Applications and Conference Papers in Mathematics.
