Welcome and Herzlich Willkommen at the Chair of Microeconomics!
Microeconomic analysis is ultimately concerned with individual and group decision making and the impact on society. Our research is focused on Game Theory and Mechanism Design. Game Theory analyzes on the one hand strategic behavior, when the involved agents may act non-cooperatively, and on the other hand offers solutions to problems of sharing a joint gain in a fair way. Mechanism Design goes one step beyond and aims at designing rules for a game, so that a desirable outcome can be achieved by strategic behavior.
