Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • Microeconomics
  • Game theory

His primary areas of investigation include Microeconomics, Mathematical economics, Game theory, Top trading cycles and Incentive. His Common value auction, Auction sniping, Bidding, Public good and Business economics investigations are all subjects of Microeconomics research. His work focuses on many connections between Public good and other disciplines, such as Personnel economics, that overlap with his field of interest in Experimental economics.

He has included themes like Axiom, Stable roommates problem and Social psychology in his Mathematical economics study. His Game theory study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Class, Ultimatum bargaining, Public economics and Perception. His research in Incentive intersects with topics in Stability, Special Interest Group and Law and economics.

His most cited work include:

  • The handbook of experimental economics (2153 citations)
  • Predicting How People Play Games: Reinforcement Learning in Experimental Games with Unique, Mixed Strategy Equilibria (1516 citations)
  • Two-Sided Matching: A Study in Game-Theoretic Modeling and Analysis (1372 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Microeconomics, Mathematical economics, Game theory, Incentive and Transplantation. Alvin E. Roth interconnects Stability, Negotiation and Top trading cycles in the investigation of issues within Microeconomics. His research ties Class and Mathematical economics together.

Alvin E. Roth studies Kidney transplantation which is a part of Transplantation. His study in Kidney transplantation focuses on Kidney Paired Donation in particular. His research in Internet auctions and Auction sniping are components of Bidding.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microeconomics (25.19%)
  • Mathematical economics (18.27%)
  • Game theory (11.36%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Transplantation (7.41%)
  • Donation (4.94%)
  • Actuarial science (8.40%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Alvin E. Roth mostly deals with Transplantation, Donation, Actuarial science, Kidney and Incentive. His work in the fields of Kidney transplantation and Kidney transplant overlaps with other areas such as Perspective. Alvin E. Roth focuses mostly in the field of Donation, narrowing it down to matters related to Kidney Paired Donation and, in some cases, Deceased donor.

His Actuarial science research includes elements of Frame, Altruism, Monetary economics and Donor registration. His Incentive research is classified as research in Microeconomics. The concepts of his Microeconomics study are interwoven with issues in Mechanism, Charter and School district.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Deadline Effect in Bargaining: Some Experimental Evidence (175 citations)
  • The promise of organ and tissue preservation to transform medicine (155 citations)
  • Nonsimultaneous Chains and Dominos in Kidney-Paired Donation-Revisited (108 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • Microeconomics
  • Game theory

Alvin E. Roth mainly investigates Donation, Transplantation, Incentive, Microeconomics and Kidney Paired Donation. His research on Donation also deals with topics like

  • Histocompatibility, Payment and Financial intermediary most often made with reference to Surgery,
  • Organ donation which is related to area like Actuarial science, Position, Public good and ABO incompatibility. His study in Incentive is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Scale, Process, Operations management, Managerial economics and Structure.

In his research on the topic of Operations management, Game theory is strongly related with Rationality. The various areas that Alvin E. Roth examines in his Game theory study include Social psychology and Ultimatum game. His Microeconomics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Stability and Negotiation.
