    9:00 PM - 11:00 PM Summer Movies in Duke St. Park: Fly Away Home

    Join friends and neighbours for a free outdoor screening of Fly Away Home (1996), a thrilling and charming family-friendly movie about a father and daughter who train a flock of abandoned geese to follow their ultralight planes from Canada to a winter home in North Carolina.

    Directed by Caroll Ballard (The Black Stallion) starring Anna Paquin and Jeff Daniels in their younger years, Fly Away Home is based on the experiences of both Bill Lishman, who in 1986 started training Canada Geese to follow his ultralight aircraft, and Dr. William J.L. Sladen, a British-born zoologist and adventurer, who aided Lishman with the migration. (Canadian Content Alert: Most of the film was shot in southeastern Ontario!)

    All are welcome to attend this free event, sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Arts and the Department of English and Film Studies. The screening starts at sundown, shortly after 9 pm. Bring your own blankets and snacks. The park is a flat turf surface and has no stairs. We will make every effort to accommodate individuals of diverse abilities.

    4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Recursive Inspection Games

    Speaker

    Bernhard von Stengel, London School of Economics

    Bernhard von Stengel is professor of mathematics at the London School of Economics. His professional degrees are in mathematics and in computer science. He is interested in the geometry and computation of Nash equilibria and other mathematical questions of game theory and operations research.

    Title

    Recursive Inspection Games

    Abstract

    We consider a sequential inspection game where an inspector uses a limited number of inspections over a larger number of stages to detect an illegal act of an inspectee. Compared with earlier models, we allow varying "rewards" to the inspectee for successful illegal acts. As one possible example, the inspectee may target a certain amount of stealing nuclear material that he accumulates over several stages, where the stage where he completes that target of stolen material gives him the highest reward. The players' information about the game is important in how to solve it, in particular since the inspector does not know what the inspectee does in an uninspected time period. Under reasonable assumptions for the payoffs, the inspector's strategy is independent of the number of successful illegal actions, so that a recursive description of the game can be used even though this assumes a fully informed inspector. We give an explicit solution for the optimal randomized strategies in this game, and describe how the inspector can induce legal behaviour (as long as inspections remain) by committing to his strategy.
