Title: Game Theory and Probability

Abstract: Games contain many of the ingredients common to all conflicts, while remaining amenable to description and study. Game theory, the mathematical study of games, is nowadays an umbrella term for the science of rational decision-making in economics, political science, biology, philosophy, and computer science.

In this talk we will discuss the basics of game theory and explore its relation to partial differential equations (PDE). We will focus our attention on a surprising connection between Random Tug-of-War games and nonlinear PDE discovered a little over a decade ago.
