Prof. Uri Zwick is giving a talk.

Shapley’s stochastic games and related models play a central role in various disciplines, including game theory, operations research and computer science. Within computer science, the models are of interest to a wide range of subcommunities, including formal methods, artificial intelligence, theory of algorithms and computational complexity. Studying variations of the model and its associated algorithms have recently led to significant and unexpected new discoveries.
