This summer school will provide an advanced introduction on how the mathematical tools of game theory can be applied to improve the resilience (security and reliability) of cyber-physical systems (CPS) that control critical national infrastructures, such as our electricity, water, and transportation networks. The operations of such CPS are driven by actions of many human decision makers who need to make decisions based on limited information. In addition, these humans frequently have conflicting objectives, which make them reluctant to share even partial information with others. Game-theoretic tools allow analyzing strategic behavior of the entities upon whose choices the CPS operations depend.
The summer school will cover:
The content will be targeted toward graduate students and postdocs coming from engineering sciences and economics.
