Applications of Dynamic Games to Global and Transboundary Environmental Issues: A Review of the Literature


  • Van Long, Ngo


This paper surveys three areas of applications of dynamic games: (i) transboundary pollution, (ii) exploitation of transboundary resources, and (iii) problems of the developing world: capital flights, foreign aid, war and peace. A refresher section introduces the basic ideas and solution techniques in differential games.
