Journal of Dynamics & Games

JDG special issue EURO 2021 & IFORS 2021
Advances in Dynamics and Games:
Games in economics, finance, human resource management, and neuroscience
EURO 2021 Athens, Greece, July 11-14, 2021
IFORS 2021 Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea August, 23-27, 2021

The Program and Organization Committees have the great pleasure of inviting the community of Operational Research (OR) to take part in this highlight in the OR life Europe and the world. The committees are preparing high quality scientific programs and exciting social programs for both conferences EURO and IFORS. These international conferences will be an excellent opportunity for the OR family to get together again in a pleasant atmosphere and, thus, they are looking forward to meeting many researchers and practitioners. Several outstanding Plenaries and Tutorial Speakers have been selected and will present the state-of-the-art in OR, outlining pathways of its future developments.

Game theory is a mathematical framework developed to address problems with conflicting or cooperating parties who are able to make rational decisions. The theory primarily deals with the finding the optimal rational decision in various scenarios. Game theory is a relatively new discipline. The modern game theory was introduced in the works of John von Neumann in the 1920s. John von Neumann, Oskar Morgenstern, and John Nash were the main contributors to the development of game theory. The theory offers a wide number of applications in different fields, including economics, political science, finance, psychology, biology, etc.

The guest of this special issue entitled ‘Advances in Dynamics and Games’, Journal of Dynamics and Games (JDG) is a pure and applied mathematical journal that publishes high quality peer-review and expository papers in all research areas of expertise of its editors. The main focus of JDG is in the interface of Dynamical Systems and Game Theory. It is devoted to the development and the diffusion of mathematical ideas and techniques that arise from the analysis and the modelling of systems where agents (whether they be rational players, markets, plants, animals, ecosystems, communication systems, etc.) interact dynamically over time.

We invite papers challenging mathematical questions occurring in such systems or provide a rigorous mathematical analysis of models where tools from dynamics and games prove to be useful. Areas covered include dynamic games, stochastic games, differential games, evolutionary games, models of learning and evolution, repeated games, mean field models, voting, auctions, matching, assignment games and other research areas of cooperative and non-cooperative game theory, preferentially where dynamics play a role, as well as the associated applications in social, economic, biology, life, physical and computer sciences.

The objective of this special issue is to explore latest development of mathematical ideas and techniques in modeling, and simulation related with Game Theory applied in economics, finance and biology. Papers in newly evolving topics are especially welcomed. We invite researchers and experts worldwide to submit high-quality innovative research papers and critical review articles on the subsequent potential topics.
