[PLUG] "Using Large-Scale Computing to Find Equilibrium Solutions in Game Theory" by Dr. John F. Nash

Sorry for the cross posting, but I thought this would be of interest
to a wide group of people in Philly (I found out about it from Walt
Mankowski's talks listserv).

Upcoming Princeton ACM/ IEEE Computer Society Meetings and Events

Mar. 18 - "Using Large-Scale Computing to Find Equilibrium
 Solutions in Game Theory", Dr. John F. Nash, Princeton University



 Using Large-Scale Computing to Find Equilibrium Solutions in Game Theory
 John Nash, Princeton University

Equilibrium problems in game theory are very useful to the
understanding of economics and many other technical fields.  In
this talk, we will get an introduction to some computational
techniques using large scale computing and Mathematica to help
us find solutions to equilibrium problems.

Dr. John F. Nash is a Senior Research Mathematician at Princeton
University.  Nash received the 1994 Nobel Prize in Economics for
his work in equilibrium problems.
