General (Suitable for students at JC Level and above)
This lecture series will feature eminent local mathematicians or mathematics educators to share with the public some of their interests and ideas.
Chen Ning, Nanyang Technological University
Dr. Chen Ning is an Associate Professor at Nanyang Technological University. He got his PhD from University of Washington and is an expert on Theoretical Computer Science and Algorithmic Game Theory. He is also an entrepreneur and has founded two startups.
With the development of the Internet and its growing impact on every walk of life, a variety of new mathematical and computational models that involve human behaviour have been established. We will introduce the rapidly developing field Algorithmic Game Theory that combines incentive analysis in game theory with efficient computational tools of mathematics and computer science.
