Title:An Invitation to Differential Games
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Alberto Bressan, Penn State University
Abstract:
This will be an introductory talk on differential games, addressed to a general mathematical audience. I shall start by presenting some classical examples of pursuit or evasion games, such as: "Lion and man", "Homicidal chauffeur", and "Lady in the lake". For all these "zero-sum" differential games, a general mathematical approach relies on the analysis of the Hamilton-Jacobi equation for the value function.
