Job description

The candidate will conduct fundamental research on complex multi-agent systems characterized by the presence of: (i) noncooperative (e.g. selfish) agents; (ii) complex networks that define the inter-dependence between objective functions, the coupling constraints, and the information exchange; (iii) uncertain variables and probabilistic constraints.

With this aim, stochastic or randomized methods, e.g. the scenario approach, shall be developed for game theory. Application areas include smart power grids and automated driving.
The PhD position is in the context of the project “Complex Network Games: The Scenario Approach” (OMEGA), funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) for curiosity-driven research in Mathematics.
