The Master Equation in Mean Field Games

In this joint work with François Delarue, we investigate the so-called « Master equation » in mean field game theory. Mean Field Games is a developing area which allows to model the dynamics of large number of agents. In this setting, the solution of the master equation has been conjectured to describe the general behavior of these agents. We show here that the master equation is well-posed and can be obtained as the limit of Nash equilibria of differential games when the number of players tends to infinity.
