Center for Mathematical Studies in Economics and Management Science
The Center for Mathematical Studies in Economics and Management Science (CMS-EMS) was created in 1971 to bring together economists, mathematicians, and social scientists at Northwestern University who use mathematical methods and models in their work.
The Math Center works to encourage and support the research and professional development of faculty members and students. We provide a link between the Northwestern community and the international professional community. A major focus of research at the Center has been the use of game theory in the analysis and design of systems, organizations, and institutions for managing and regulating economic and political activities. The Math Center is also closely affiliated with the Center for Economic Theory (CET) of the Weinberg College.
