The Department of Economics invites you to a virtual seminar titled ‘Sequential Entry and Perfect Equilibrium’ by Dr. Ruhi Sonal, Assistant Professor, Indian Institute of Management, Jodhpur, on 23 September 2021, at 3:30 PM.

Abstract
We study a class of infinite horizon games in which agents enter the game in an exogenously given sequence. The outcome of the game is modeled as the formation of a network. We characterize the class of perfect equilibria in this setting and provide conditions under which behavioral phenomena such as “herding” occur. The setting and the results are applicable to the formation of networks on social media platforms and to the market for internships faced by medical and law school graduates.
