Network Games, Tropical Geometry,
and Quantum Communication


This highly interdisciplinary conference is motivated by challenges arising in the analysis and the algorithmic treatment of next generation networks Networks already have a close connection to algorithmic game theory, but we are convinced that future research in this area will benefit from additional geometric insights. Quantum communication networks promise notions of secure multipartite communication.

This international conference - bringing together leading experts in their fields - explores topics in network games, tropical geometry and quantum communication and their interrelation. It is part of the Thematic Einstein Semester of the newly installed MATH+ excellence cluster on application-oriented mathematics within the Berlin research landscape.


The conference will take place June 3-7, 2019.
