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
"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)
