Online workshop: Mean Field Games and related fields

Description:This workshop will introduce participants to the theory of Mean Field Games and will lay out various research interests in the field. Mean Field Games model the dynamics of a large number of competing and rational agents. Assumed undistinguishable,  the agents seek to minimize an individual cost which depends on their over statistical distribution.  This
