This doctoral seminar studies ideas from game theory and industrial organization that are relevant to the field of operations/management science. The objectives of the course are (1) to acquaint you with basic economic and game theoretic analysis through lectures; and (2) stimulate your research ideas through paper discussions of applications in operations/management science.  Overall, this seminar should be a valuable opportunity to both learn about game theory and its applications in operations.

Gabriel Weintraub

Sidney Taurel Associate Professor of BusinessGabriel Weintraub's research covers several subjects that lie in the intersection between operations/management science, and applied economics. He is particularly interested in developing mathematical and computational models for the economic analysis of problems in operations; as well as making contributions to industrial organization and computational economics. Before obtaining his Ph.D. at Stanford, Professor Weintraub was a full-time instructor at the Department of Industrial...
