## Summer School on Frontiers in Mathematics and Economics

- Start Date: 07/10/2006
- End Date: 07/21/2006

University of British Columbia

The summer school brings together graduate students, postdoctoral

fellows and young faculty members from business schools, economics,

mathematics and operations research with leading economists and

mathematicians. It exposes students in business administration and

economics to mathematical models and methods that they will find useful

in their research, and graduate students and young researchers in

mathematics and operations research to new mathematical problems

arising from economic theory.

The main focus of the summer school is a set of four courses, each

taught by world leaders in the corresponding discipline. All courses

are accompanied by introductory tutorials and a series of seminar

presentations.

"Dynamic Contract Theory and Corporate Finance"

Jean-Charles Rochet (Professor of Mathematics and Economics, U. Toulouse I)

"Equilibrium: Theory and Computation"

Kenneth L. Judd (Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution on War, Revolution

and Peace), R. Tyrrell Rockafellar, (Professor of Mathematics, U.

Washington), Roger Wets (Professor of Mathematics, UC, Davis)

"Information and Markets"

William R. Zame (Professor of Mathematics and Economics, UC, Los Angeles)

"The mathematical Structure of Quality Pricing"

Ivar Ekeland (Professor of Mathematics and Economics, UBC)
