The study of Game Theory in San Luis, Argentina, began in the 1960s, with the pioneering work of Prof. Ezio Marchi, who earned his PhD degree under the supervision of Ewald Burger at Universidad Nacional de Cuyo. Prof. Marchi continued his studies visiting several prestigious universities around the world, including the universities of Princeton, British Columbia, New York and Southern California.
By Marchi's initiative, the Instituto de Matemática Aplicada San Luis was founded in 1982. Back then, several of his students engaged in Game Theory research. Today, an ever-increasing number of researchers and doctoral fellows belong to the Game Theory Group, which keeps a nourished international collaboration network.
The product of the research undertaken by members of the Game Theory Group is published in prestigious Game Theory and Economics journals, such as Journal of Economic Theory, Theoretical Economics, Games and Economic Behavior, Social Choice and Welfare, International Journal of Game Theory and Mathematical Social Sciences.
