Spring 1999 semester:
JeanPierre Langlois was teaching a mathematics seminar (Math 500) on "Markov Processes,
Decisions, and Evolution." The seminar covered topics on matrices and some of their applications
to Markov chains, dynamical systems, and evolutionary game theory.
The seminar was part of a new collaboration between the Department of Mathematics at
San Francisco State University and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) in
Berkeley. The project allows our Faculty and graduate students to participate in the
programs run by MSRI. During the Spring 1999, MSRI had a program on random matrices. Part
of the seminar was devoted to an introduction to that subject. Speakers from MSRI were
invited to give talks here, at SFSU.
The lecture series was videotaped and translated into
streaming video format. It can be accessed at the MSRI web site
http://www.msri.org/
Class notes are posted in the MSRI section above in Adobe (.pdf) format for downloading.
JeanPierre Langlois' research area is game theory with a focus on discounted repeated
games, computational techniques, and applications to international relations.
The following selected papers are typical. See also the GamePlan software on the next
