One School Seminar
’Time-inconsistent problems’
Zhou Zhou  (University of Sydney)

Date and time: Thursday 18 April, 13:00-14:00 AEST 

Location: Law Annex Lecture Theatre 026 and online 

Abstract: Time inconsistency refers to the phenomenon that a plan that was deemed to 
be optimal at some point may no longer be preferred from a future perspective, due to a 
change of preferences. In this talk, we will present some dynamic optimisation problems 
in decision making that are time-inconsistent. We will introduce a game-theoretic 
framework to address the time inconsistency. We will further investigate a class of 
time-inconsistent problems - stopping under nonexponential discounting. Finally, we will 
talk about mathematical challenges in the research of general time-inconsistent problems.
