Hyperbolic Conservation Laws arising in the study of the forward-forward Mean-Field Games.

Speaker: Prof. Marc Sedjro (German Research Chair, AIMS South Africa)

Abstract: In this talk, we introduce several models of the so-called forward-forward Mean-Field Games (MFGs). The forward-forward models arise in the study of numerical schemes to approximate stationary MFGs. We establish a link between these models and a class of hyperbolic conservation laws. Furthermore, we investigate the existence of solutions and examine long-time limit properties.Joint work with Diogo Gomes and Levon Nurbekyan.

Short biography of Speaker:
Marc Sedjro is the German Research Chair for Applied Mathematics with a specialization in Partial Differential Equations and Calculus of Variations at AIMS South Africa.  He completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2012. After that, he spent a few years as a Postdoctoral fellow at RWTH- Aachen and at KAUST.  He is interested in problems arising in  Mean-Field Games and in Fluid Mechanics.
