Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Microeconomics
  • Game theory
  • Macroeconomics

Jörgen W. Weibull mainly focuses on Mathematical economics, Game theory, Best response, Nash equilibrium and Microeconomics. His Mathematical economics study combines topics in areas such as Probabilistic logic and Preference. His work in the fields of Game theory, such as Evolutionary game theory and Repeated game, overlaps with other areas such as Social evolution.

His Evolutionary game theory research includes elements of Core, Cognitive science, Evolutionarily stable state and Intuition. Jörgen W. Weibull integrates several fields in his works, including Social evolution, Replicator equation, Moran process and Management science. Jörgen W. Weibull combines subjects such as Altruism and Welfare economics with his study of Microeconomics.

His most cited work include:

  • Evolutionary Game Theory (3031 citations)
  • Balanced-budget redistribution as the outcome of political competition (1063 citations)
  • Social Norms and Economic Incentives in the Welfare State (538 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Mathematical economics, Microeconomics, Nash equilibrium, Game theory and Incentive. His work on Repeated game, Epsilon-equilibrium, Equilibrium selection and Strategy as part of general Mathematical economics study is frequently linked to Class, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His work on Competition is typically connected to Principal–agent problem as part of general Microeconomics study, connecting several disciplines of science.

His Nash equilibrium research integrates issues from Stochastic game, Limit and Robustness. His study connects Epistemology and Game theory. His Incentive research incorporates elements of Information asymmetry, Production, Norm and Labour economics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mathematical economics (62.61%)
  • Microeconomics (26.52%)
  • Nash equilibrium (25.22%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Morality (6.96%)
  • Social psychology (11.30%)
  • Positive economics (8.26%)

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

Morality, Social psychology, Positive economics, Nash equilibrium and Spite are his primary areas of study. His research on Morality also deals with topics like

  • Social preferences which connect with Complete information, Public finance, Counterexample, Mechanism design and Social dilemma,
  • Public good, Selfishness, Strategic behavior and Coordination game most often made with reference to Altruism. His Optimism study in the realm of Social psychology connects with subjects such as Cultural transmission in animals.

To a larger extent, he studies Mathematical economics with the aim of understanding Nash equilibrium. His Mathematical economics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Constraint and Optimal control. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Altruism and Inequity aversion.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Optimal epidemic suppression under an ICU constraint (12 citations)
  • Evolutionary Models of Preference Formation (12 citations)
  • Evolutionary Models of Preference Formation (12 citations)

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

  • Microeconomics
  • Game theory
  • Macroeconomics

Jörgen W. Weibull mostly deals with Morality, Positive economics, Spite, Evolutionary stability and Preference formation. Jörgen W. Weibull interconnects Stochastic game, Strategic behavior, Coordination game and Public good in the investigation of issues within Morality. The concepts of his Positive economics study are interwoven with issues in Selfishness, Altruism, Microeconomics and Repeated game.

The Spite study combines topics in areas such as Strategic interaction, Inequity aversion, Social preferences and Social dilemma. His Evolutionary stability research includes themes of Altruism and Assortativity.
