Peters, Hans

Full Professor, Department of Quantitative Economics

Hans Peters is a Full Professor of Mathematical Economics at Maastricht University School of Business and Economics and Honorary Professor at the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule, Aachen. In addition he is Fellow of the Society for the Advancement of Economic Theory (SAET).

Peters’ research focuses on Game Theory and Social Choice theory. Game Theory develops and analyses mathematical models for situations of conflict and cooperation between several parties. It therefore plays a prominent role in economics, but also in other social sciences, such as political science. Applications range from competition between firms to strategic behavior of management, cost division problems, or bargaining.

Social Choice Theory is a discipline closely related to Game Theory. Here Peters uses mathematical models to study voting behavior and, more generally, the functioning of political and administrative systems.
