Inductive Game Theory and Logical Positivism
Ryuichiro Ishikawa
Waseda Global Forum   14 41-60   Mar 2018
Inductive game theory is a branch of game theory. This theory captures how individual experiences are reflected into their decisions. From the viewpoint, the theory answers why individuals have different/various views for an identical situation, a...

Research Grants & Projects

Inductive learning theory and its application to experimental asset markets
Project Year: Apr 2014 - Mar 2018
The purpose of this project is to construct inductive learning theory to describe learning process of bounded rational decision makers, which is based on their experiences. We focused on experimental asset markets, and analyzed their behavioral da...
Theoretical and Experimental studies on Financial contagion due to Accounting system
Project Year: Apr 2014 - Mar 2016
In this study, I have both theoretical and experimental studies on mark-to-market accounting systems. In the theoretical work, I show that the system encourages financial contagion, and that banks will go bankrupt even when the banks prepare the l...
Voting Outcomes in Public Facility Location Problems
Project Year: Apr 2013 - Mar 2015
In order to take account of the impact of voters' spatial location, this project is an attempt to characterize the gap between voting location and optimal one by using a simple public facility location model. First, we derive the necessary and su...
Role of higher order beliefs in decision making: Inductive approach
Project Year: Apr 2011 - Mar 2014
The productions of this project are classified into either theoretical ones and experimental economic ones. In theoretical productions, we propose a framework of dynamic logic for inductive game theory. In addition, we study how the difference of ...
Theoretical Analysis of an Economic System with Information andTransaction Networks in Market Economies
Project Year: Apr 2010 - Mar 2013
As a theoretical model of competitive transaction network, a model of ‘Wicksellian Transaction Networks’ is constructed wherein various competitive transaction structures affect resulting outcome of competition within the network. A Wicksellian Tr...
