Network Games, Tropical Geometry, and
This highly interdisciplinary conference is motivated by challenges arising in the analysis and the algorithmic treatment of next generation networks. Networks already have a close connection to algorithmic game theory, but we are convinced that future research in this area will benefit from additional geometric insights. Quantum communication networks promise notions of secure multi-partite communication.
This international conference - bringing together leading experts in their fields - explores topics in network games, tropical geometry and quantum communication and their interrelation. It is part of the Thematic Einstein Semester of the newly installed MATH+ excellence cluster on application-oriented mathematics within the Berlin research landscape.
The conference will take place June 3-7, 2019.
