### Game Theory on Interconnected Networks

**Student-Run Applied & Math Seminar**

Speaker: | Andrew Smith |

Location: | 2112 MSB |

Start time: | Fri, Apr 8 2016, 11:10AM |

Game theory provides a mathematical tool to study interactions between self-interested agents. Many systems today, including transportation networks, utility services, and the Internet, are controlled by several self-interested entities that are not necessarily cooperative. While connections between entities are often necessary for such networks to function, they can also potentially spread failures and impair recovery efforts. In this talk, I will go over examples of game theoretic concepts necessary to understand a subset of games on networks called "Interdependent Network Security Games", and introduce mathematical and computational tools for their analysis.
