Ariel Rubinstein, professor of economics at the School of Economics at Tel Aviv University and New York University, will present a talk titled "A Typology of Players: Between Instinctive and Contemplative."

In 1982, he published "Perfect equilibrium in a bargaining model," an important contribution to the theory of bargaining. The model is known also as a Rubinstein bargaining model. It describes two-person bargaining as an extensive game with perfect information in which the players alternate offers. He also co-wrote "A Course in Game Theory" (1994) with Martin J. Osborne, a textbook that has been cited in excess of 7,790 times as of January 2018.

Rubinstein's talk is sponsored by the Political Economy Research Institute and the Economics Department's Economic Theory Workshop.

This event is free and open to the public.
