Mean Field Games Model for Cryptocurrency Mining

Speaker: Max Reppen, from Boston University Time: 04/08/21 ,2-2:50pm Zoom: 992 7853 8762 Abstract: We propose a mean field game model to study the question of how centralization of reward and computational power occur in the Bitcoin-like cryptocurrencies. Miners compete against each other for mining rewards by increasing their computational power. This leads to a novel mean field […]

Biological and ecological models under stochastic perturbation, past dependence and spatial inhomogeneity: Modeling and longtime characterization

Speaker: Nhu N. Nguyen from University of Connecticut Time: 04/22/21, 2-2:50pm Zoom : 992 7853 8762 Abstract: The dynamics of many models in Biology and Ecology such as: epidemic models, tumor-immune models, chemostat models, prey-predator models, competitive models, and among others can be mathematically described. The earliest and simplest mathematical models are given by ordinary differential equations (ODE). Long-standing […]
