Centre for Mathematical and Theoretical Economics (MATE)

Centre for Mathematical and Theoretical Economics (MATE)

The Centre for Mathematical and Theoretical Economics builds upon the Department’s traditional strength in economic theory. There is a focus on decision theory, but also well-recognized competence in game theory, both in its cooperative variant and its non-cooperative version, as well as a strength in applications, like industrial organization, financial economics, or models of evolution. MATE is intensifying its collaboration with the University of Zurich, and expects a particularly fruitful collaboration with the Zurich Centre for Decision and Neuroeconomic Theory (NOMIS).
