Cordially invite you to
Professor Wazir Hasan Abdi Memorial Lecture
( The Fifteenth in the series )
Professor R.Ramanujam, The Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai, at 15 P.M. on 26th September 2014
Title: Game Theory for the Internet Age
Lecture 1 : The Problem, 1940.(2.15 p.m. – 3.15 p.m.)
Lecture 2 : 21st century solutions( 3.30 p.m. – 4.30p.m.)
Venue : Mathematics Auditorium
NB: There will be a memorial meeting at 1.45 p.m.
Theoretical computer science is often about giving constructive proofs to classical existence theorems, leading to algorithms (or showing that this is not possible). In this talk, we discuss one such problem, posed as an exercise in measure theory in 1940, and for which it took 50 years to find an algorithmic solution. These algorithms find direct applications in internet technology and link computer science with game theory.
