Markets as Pendulums: The Physics of Learning in Games

28 maggio 2019 ore 11:00 - 12:30

Aula 303, Sede di Viale Romania, 32

Speaker: Georgios Piliouras, Singapore University of Technology and Design


We review a recent thread of papers that explores connections between adaptive learning dynamics in gamesand ideas in classical mechanics: E.g. When can we prove that learning behavior in a game is periodic? Is there a notion of energy that is being preserved? What are the laws of motion for markets? We will bring together notions from physics such as Poincar\'{e} recurrence, Hamiltonians and energy conservation with standard game theoretic notions of Nash and coarse correlated equilibria. No background in physics is expected and the talk will be self-contained.
