Abstract:

This project concerns the design of algorithms for computing game-theoretic solutions. Game theory concerns how to act in a strategically optimal way in environments with other agents who also seek to act optimally but have different, and possibly opposite, interests. Such algorithms have recently found application in a number of real-world security applications, including among others airport security, scheduling Federal Air Marshals, and scheduling US Coast Guard patrols. We aim to extend these techniques not only to new settings but also to temporally extended multi-period models.
