SADCO Project title: Convergence of discrete time games to continuous time games.

This project area concerns optimal control and differential games problems, which take account of discrete time phenomena (information lags, discrete disturbances and random events). The corresponding value function appears to satisfy a discretized version of a Hamilton-Jacobi type equation. The aim is to look at conditions under which a limiting equation is obtained, when the discretization interval tends to zero, and to identify it with the Hamilton-Jacobi equation of some continuous time problem. We shall study such limit behavior, in connection also with stochastic games and games with incomplete information.
