John Wu got his start in academic research as a sophomore, working on problems related to knowledge theory and received his academic thesis scholarship in 1990. After the initial successful attempt，he has always been digging in many challenging scientific frontiers，such as network science and electronic commerce, transitional economics, etc, all centring on game theory and its applications. In addition, he is the author of numerous articles and several books in a broad range of scientific fields.
John Wu's research style is perceiving the essence through the appearance due to the interdisplinary training in mathematics, computer science, management science, economics, philosophy, especially, the systematic methodological and logical training in philosophy, this make him can follow John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern’s original idea about “rigorous approach” of "parallel or opposite interest" games to develop a unified analytical tool and technique of game situation---- Strategic Correlativity Principle(SCP) by extending Robert Aumann’s solution concept ----Correlated Equilibrium. The SCP comes from Michael Chwe’s Signed Covariance Lemma. The Positively Correlated Strategy and the Negatively Correlated Strategy, the main content of the SCP, together with John Nash’s classification of noncooperative games and cooperative games, consist of the ordinate axis and abscissa axis of the coordinate system in game science and is very useful in game engineering.
