Mean-field games with a major player. (Jeux à champ moyen avec agent dominant.) (English. Abridged French version) Zbl 1410.91048
Summary: We introduce and study mathematically a new class of mean-field-game systems of equations. This class of equations allows us to model situations involving one major player (or agent) and a “large” group of “small” players.

91A15 Stochastic games, stochastic differential games
91A23 Differential games (aspects of game theory)
