Tuomas Sandholm has researched Game theory in several fields, including Perfect information, Artificial intelligence and Operations research.

Tuomas Sandholm combines topics linked to Bidding with his work on Common value auction. His research in Nash equilibrium intersects with topics in Correlated equilibrium and Game tree. His Combinatorial auction research incorporates themes from Search algorithm and Mechanism design.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mathematical optimization (34.48%)
  • Common value auction (16.27%)
  • Nash equilibrium (16.06%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Mathematical optimization (34.48%)
  • Nash equilibrium (16.06%)
  • Extensive-form game (9.85%)

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

Tuomas Sandholm mainly investigates Mathematical optimization, Nash equilibrium, Extensive-form game, Game tree and Regret. Tuomas Sandholm combines subjects such as Rate of convergence, Regret minimization and Pruning with his study of Mathematical optimization. Tuomas Sandholm interconnects Correlated equilibrium, Applied mathematics, Information set and Repeated game in the investigation of issues within Nash equilibrium.

Game theory covers he research in Repeated game. His work carried out in the field of Extensive-form game brings together such families of science as State, Entropy, Algorithm and Solution concept. His Game tree research also works with subjects such as

  • Perfect information which is related to area like Theoretical computer science, Key, Subgame and Search algorithm,
  • Smoothing which intersects with area such as Binary entropy function.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Superhuman AI for heads-up no-limit poker: Libratus beats top professionals (193 citations)
  • Superhuman AI for multiplayer poker (157 citations)
  • Learning to Branch (48 citations)

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

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Algorithm
  • Programming language

His primary areas of study are Mathematical optimization, Game tree, Perfect information, Extensive-form game and Set. His research on Mathematical optimization focuses in particular on Nash equilibrium. His research investigates the link between Game tree and topics such as Iterative method that cross with problems in Binary entropy function, Rate of convergence, Smoothing, Equilibrium finding and Artificial intelligence.

His study in Perfect information is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Chess endgame, Subgame, Theoretical computer science and Key. His study looks at the relationship between Theoretical computer science and fields such as Economic model, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Set research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Quality, Integer programming and Search algorithm.
