**Speaker**: Nidhi Rathi

**Date**: 31st October 2017 (Tuesday)

**Time**: 09:15 pm – 10:15 pm

**Venue**: Lecture Hall I, Department of Mathematics

**Abstract**:

This talk is going to serve as *an introductory session for Game Theory*. I will touch upon some of its (many) basic yet interesting concepts. To begin with, I will introduce the *Game of Life* devised by the British mathematician John H. Conway in 1970. Moving on, I will talk about combinatorial *Sperner’s lemma* and its set covering analog, *KKM lemma* (they are both equivalent to Brouwer’s fixed point theorem). Time permitting, I would love to introduce *The Game of Hex*, invented independently by the mathematicians Piet Hein and John Nash.

**Prerequisites**: A curious mind 😛

**Area**: Game Theory
