Professor McKibben and long-time colleague/mentor Dr. David Keck continued their 5-year study of stochastic evolution equations this summer by tackling a new direction, namely stochastic differential game theory. Simply put, problems in this area are extensions of the well-known “cat and mouse” pursuit-evasion schemes, childhood game of tag, and jet-to-jet dogfighting. The progress made this summer will be presented at various conferences this year. Recent work in this direction has been published in Stochastic Analysis and Applications, and Nonlinear Analysis.
