Description:

This course investigates strategic interactions in energy resource markets and covers advanced optimization and equilibrium concepts to solve the associated models. It aims to provide participants with a strong theoretical understanding of Generalized Nash games, leader-follower Stackelberg games, and the related mathematical concepts of (Quasi-) Variational Inequalites (VI and QVI), Mixed Complementarity Problems, and Mathematical/Equilibrium Problems under Equilibrium Constraints (MPEC/EPEC). The practical part of the course covers applications of these methodologies to energy market problems, based on examples from the recent literature, and case studies in the oil, natural gas, and coal sector.

Participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of nonlinear optimization, mixed complementarity problems, Karush-Kuhn-Tucker conditions and convexity in higher dimensions as well as hands-on experience in GAMS.

Trainer: Sauleh Siddiqui, PhD, is Assistant Professor at the Whiting School of Engineering and is on the leadership council of the Systems Institute at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore.

Room and time schedule will be announced later on!

Description:

This semester we will offer an one-off additional seminar for students at all levels (Bachelor/Master/Doctoral). Its main objective is to learn the fundamentals of the Open Data Science workflow based on Github and R. We will do this by jointly evaluating the findings of a field experiment on the effects of self-regulated online learning and procrastination on exam performance. Interested students can apply by sending their Github account ID and their most recent transcript of records to Joachim Gassen (gassen(at)wiwi.hu-berlin.de) until November 3, 2017. For further information please check the attached syllabus. Feel free to contact Joachim Gassen directly in case you have additional questions.
