       Research Summary

Rann Smorodinsky's main research interests are in the field of game theory, and specifically learning issues in games (learning theory). The main solution concept used in game theory is the concept of Nash equilibrium. Learning theory attempts to provide dynamic foundations for the use of Nash equlibrium as a solution concept. Rann Smorodinsky's Ph.D. dealt with Bayesian-type learning, i.e., learning by rational agents. Nowadays his interests are in understanding how boundedly rational agents learn.
