Michael Finus

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Provides a game theoretical perspective on the problem of international pollution control. Presents background for those unfamiliar with game theory. Explores how cooperation can be established between countries to fight international pollution, analyzing static games with discrete strategy space; finite dynamic games with discrete strategy space; infinite dynamic games with discrete strategy space; whether, and under what conditions, the linkage of two or more issues may be conducive to cooperation; a simple static global emission game with continuous strategy space; finite dynamic games with continuous strategy space and static representations of dynamic games; bargaining over a uniform emission reduction quota and a uniform emission tax; the global emission game in the context of an infinite time horizon; and the coalition formation process in an N-country world.
