Current master's thesis topics.
|Michael Finus||I am happy to supervise topics related economic problems that involve externalities (spillovers) across economic agents, where coordination and cooperation would generate global welfare gains but which typically suffer from 'free-riding' (i.e., not everybody is contributing its fair share). These are typical non-zero sum games. It is interesting to analyze those factors, which cause free-riding, but also how and through which measures those incentives can be mitigated. Many of these problems relate to collective decision making and public and global governance. International and global environmental problems, like climate change and overfishing, are prominent examples but there are many others related to international trade for instance. Generally, I feel comfortable supervising work in the area of Environmental Economics, Public Economics, Game Theory and International Agreements. I am happy to discuss preliminary ideas at an informal level. Please make an appointment by e-mail.||Dt., Engl.|

I am happy to consider other topics as well.
|Christian Klamler||Master's theses will be supervised in areas focusing on (1) voting procedures, i.e., the aggregation of individual preferences; (2) fair division and matching, i.e., the allocation of divisible and/or indivisible goods among groups of agents; and (3) general aspects in Social Choice Theory and the theory of Judgement Aggregation. Own ideas for topics in those areas are highly welcome.||Dt., Engl.||UniGrazOnline|

Master's theses topics focus on decision theory and game theory, the theory of strategic interaction. Concrete topics could be public good provision, experiments in game theory, auction theory, or the evolution of social norms. Other possibilities are topics about the strategic interaction in certain well-specified markets, such as supermarket chain competition, the market for apples, or the market for vaccines. Further possibilities are topics in financial economics, such as testing the efficient market hypothesis, or applying preference theories under uncertainty to finance problems.
I would also be interested in testing game theory in the field. I am a member of the new field of excellence COLIBRI (or Complexity of Life) at the University of Graz, where we work on interdisciplinary research projects, such as strategic communication and linguistics, competition and symbiosis between plants and/or animals, as well as the psychology of human decision making. Topics in these areas would also be possible.
