Title:  Mathematics for optimal contract theory

Abstract:   Contract theory plays a major role in modern economic modeling and has genuine application in real life, and many potential applications in connection with new technologies. The main concern is to design a management delegation contract between a Principal and an Agent which sets the basis of a satisfactory collaboration so as to put the best incentive for the Agent to fulfill the objective of the Principal. The problem is naturally formulated as a (Stackelberg) differential game. A general solution approach is provided by using recent representation results from backward stochastic differential equations.
