An Economic Analysis of Airport Security Screening
Interesting paper: "Passenger Profiling, Imperfect Screening, and Airport Security," by Nicola Persico and Petra E. Todd. The authors use game theory to investigate the optimal screening policy, in a scenario when there are different social groups (separated by felons, race, religion, etc.) with different preferences for crime and/or terrorism.
