MCFAM Seminar - Graphon Trading Networks Static Properties
Speaker: Ping Zhong, University of Minnesota
Abstract: This work is undertaken through the MFM-directed study elective under the guidance of professor John Dodson. I am studying the static and dynamic nature of the equilibration process in a simple market consisting of agents trading complementary commodities in a sampled community graphon network. Interestingly, the convergence seems to be suboptimal over a wide range of graphon parameters and network sizes. It remains to be seen whether stochastic perturbation in the agent endowments or the network connections can lead to improved outcomes.
