We invite you to participate in the St.Petersburg Economic seminar (HSE, EU, PDMI) on November, 14.

Mikhail Panov (HSE SPb) will give a talk on Agreements in Continuous Time.

Time:
 18:00 - 19:30

Venue: St Petersburg, Fontanka river embankment, 27, PDMI RAS, Marble hall (2nd floor)

Abstract: I propose a way to formulate and solve for subgame perfect equilibria of continuous-time games with both observable and unobservable actions. The main idea is to study directly self-enforcing agreements corresponding to the interaction, without setting up the full extensive-form game. 
To discipline the frequency of observable deviations, I impose an inertia restriction that makes the deviator stuck with his action for a small amount of time. Depending on an application, I consider two types of inertia. Under hard inertia, upon detecting a deviation, the other players are stuck with their previously intended actions for a small period of time as well. Under soft inertia, the other players can react to a deviation immediately.
To illustrate the method and to show its tractability, I consider several examples of continuous-time games from the existing literature.
