Proposal: Game Theory

Are questions on topics in operational research/optimal control/optimal stopping welcome here? The current definition is rather narrow and I want to know the answer to these questions before i commit. Wikipedia puts Markov decision processes as part of the article but it is not clear at all to me such questions would receive any attention at all, judging by the question asked so far.

  • I imagine they'd be welcome in Mathematics if they weren't allowed in Game Theory.

  • @JoeZ. yes but they will rarely attract an answer.

  • @Lost1 I would really appreciate if you could add a few sentences to this question describing how control theory (or any of the more specific topics in your question) relates to game theory (i.e. there must be some reason why you think those topics are appropriate). This would help those of us not familiar with those topics judge whether such questions are acceptable. Feb 20, 2014 at 18:22
  • @NauticalMile okay, i will do that.

    Well, there are optimal-control/optimal-stopping questions that are related to GT, and there are questions that are not. There is an intersection between both areas. Markov decision process questions could attract attention in a GT site as long as they fall within this intersection. Aug 2, 2014 at 13:01
