Coalescence estimates for the corner growth model with exponential weights.
Speaker: Xiao Shen (University of Wisconsin Madison) Time: 03/04/2021, 2:00pm -2:50pm Zoom ID: 992 7853 8762 Abstract: We establish estimates for the coalescence time of semi-infinite directed geodesics in the planar corner growth model with i.i.d. exponential weights. There are four estimates: upper and lower bounds on the probabilities of both fast and slow coalescence on the correct spatial scale with exponent 3/2. […]

Sharing Profits in the Sharing Economy
Speaker: Gu Wang from WPI Time: 11/19/2020, 2:00 pm -2:50pm Zoom: 992 7853 8762 Abstract: A monopolist platform (the principal) shares profits with a population of affiliates (the agents), heterogeneous in skill, by offering them a common nonlinear contract contingent on individual output. The principal cannot discriminate across individual skill, but knows its distribution and aims […]
