The summer school brings together graduate students, postdoctoral
fellows and young faculty members from business schools, economics,
mathematics and operations research with leading economists and
mathematicians. It exposes students in business administration and
economics to mathematical models and methods that they will find useful
in their research, and graduate students and young researchers in
mathematics and operations research to new mathematical problems arising
from economic theory.

The main focus of the summer school is a set of four courses, each
taught by world leaders in the corresponding discipline. All courses are
accompanied by introductory tutorials and a series of seminar presentations.

  1. Topic: Dynamic Contract Theory and Corporate Finance
     Lecturer: Jean-Charles Rochet (Professor of Mathematics and
     Economics, U. Toulouse I)
  2. Topic: Equilibrium: Theory and Computation
     Lecturers: Kenneth L. Judd (Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution on
     War, Revolution and Peace),
     R. Tyrrell Rockafellar, (Professor of Mathematics, U. Washington),
     Roger Wets (Professor of Mathematics, UC, Davis)
  3. Topic: Information and Markets
     Lecturer: William R. Zame (Professor of Mathematics and Economics,
     UC, Los Angeles)
  4. Topic: The mathematical Structure of Quality Pricing
     Lecturer: Ivar Ekeland (Professor of Mathematics and Economics, UBC)

Please forward this message to the members in your Economics Department
and Business School if possible.
