We review a series of recent results on Mean Field Games, including existence and the construction of approximate Nash equilibria. We also present the analog of the stochastic maximum principle approach to the optimal control of stochastic dynamics of the McKean-Vlasov type. In both cases existence results are proven by solving forward-backward stochastic differential equations of the McKean-Vlasov type. (joint works with F. Delarue)
