Title: Modeling Populations of Adaptive Individuals

"...How do we model a population of individuals that all make tradeoff decisions, when the options and payoffs available to each individual depends on the behavior of all the other individuals? We have explored one solution, which is to model individual decisions as approximations, based explicitly on simple predictions, that produce good but not optimal behavior and are updated routinely as the world changes."

The Geometry and Analysis on Manifold conference (GAMSB17) will be held at the Department of Mathematics of University of California at Santa Barbara From April 7, 2017 to April 9, 2017. The lectures will be held in South Hall 6635.

Graduate students, fresh Ph.D.s and under-represented minorities are especially encouraged to join our meeting. Partial financial support is available.

The conference is supported by the Research Training Groups (RTG) in Topology and Geometry funded by the Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and College of Letter and Science, University of California at Santa Barbara.
