Title: Contract theory and mean field games to inform epidemic models.

Abstract: After a short introduction to contract theory, we review recent results on models involving one principal and a field of agents, both for continuous and discrete state spaces.
We conclude with the discussion of an application to the control of the spread of an epidemic to illustrate the potential to inform regulatory decisions.

Moderator: Sebastian Jaimungal, Department of Statistical Sciences, University of Toronto
