Game Theory

Leader: Kóczy Á. László

Description of research area

The Game Theory Research Group deals with strategic conflicts, community decisions, ranking and distribution problems from both a theoretical and a practical point of view. The group was founded in 2010, as the first Social Science Momentum group. Recently, we have been dealing with more and more practical problems, these are: financial, social and infrastructural networks, their efficiency, balance and vulnerability; design of voting systems; decision influence analysis; laboratory examination of financial decisions.

Group members: Ambrus-Lakatos Lóránd, Csóka Péter, Kiss Hubert János, Sziklai Balázs
