LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Steve Tanner, associate professor of mathematics, shares strategies for balancing time and data in decision-making during the next colloquium Thursday, Feb. 25 at Eastern Oregon University.
“When to Choose: Some Mathematical Models for Optimal Stopping” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. Light refreshments will be served and the presentation will also be streamed live at livestream.com/eou/colloquium.
Tanner will demonstrate how optimal stopping problems involve finding a balance between time and data. On one hand, the longer one waits to make a decision, the more data exists to make an informed choice. On the other hand, delaying a decision may mean the best opportunities are no longer available. Tanner will discuss a few mathematical models involving this conflict for which an ideal strategy may be found.
