Galyna Livshyts - A Tight Net with Respect to a Random Matrix Norm and Applications to Estimating Singular Values

In this talk we construct a net around the unit sphere with good properties. We show that with exponentially high probability, the value of |Ax| on the sphere can be approximated well using this net,…

Éva Tardos - Learning and Efficiency of Outcomes in Games

Selfish behavior can often lead to suboptimal outcome for all participants, a phenomenon illustrated by many classical examples in game theory. Over the last decade we have studied Nash equilibria…
