Game Dynamics on the Internet

Abstract:Much research in Game Theory studies dynamic environments in which decision-makers repeatedly interact, exploring the global implications of such interactions, e.g., when does "natural" behavior (a la each strategic agent repeatedly best-responding to others) yield desirable global configurations (e.g., an equilibrium state). We will discuss how game-theoretic insights in this area can be leveraged to tackle fundamental challenges facing today's Internet, including routing instability and poor performance, and interesting directions for future research.
