Title: "Existence of weak solutions to stationary mean-field games"

Local: Sala de seminários, Edifício VII

Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Quinta da Torre, Caparica

Abstract: In this seminar, we will address the problem of existence of weak solutions to stationary monotone mean-field games. We introduce a notion of weak solution and prove the existence of such weak solutions under a minimal set of assumptions. We will also examine the properties of these solutions in several examples. Our approach is based on monotone operator methods and provides a general framework to construct weak solutions to stationary MFGs with local, nonlocal, or congestion terms.
