Personnel Selection in a Competitive Environment

Marilyn Bello, Rafael Bello, María M. García-Lorenzo, Ann Nowe
2016 Journal of Computacion y Sistemas  
The personnel selection problem is a classical decision making problem.  ...  Second, given the rankings of the candidates for each employer, a method based on the game theory is presented to solve this problem.  ...  We have formulated the personnel selection problem as a non-cooperative game; the game theoretic approach provides a mathematical framework designed for the analysis of the employer interaction.  ...

Optimising market share and profit margin: SMDP-based tariff pricing under the smart grid paradigm

Rodrigue T. Kuate, Maria Chli, Hai H. Wang
2014 IEEE PES Innovative Smart Grid Technologies, Europe  
We have abstracted the problem of deciding on a tariff price as faced by a retailer, as a semi-Markov decision problem (SMDP).  ...  Smart grid technologies have given rise to a liberalised and decentralised electricity market, enabling energy providers and retailers to have a better understanding of the demand side and its response  ...  This problem has been modelled as a semi-Markov decision problem (SMDP) and solved with a hierarchical reinforcement learning approach MAXQ value function decomposition and SARSA(λ).  ...

The Effect of Stakeholder Interactions on Design Decisions [chapter]

Garrett Waycaster, Christian Bes, Volodymyr Bilotkach, Christian Gogu, Raphael Haftka, Nam-Ho Kim
2015 Computational Methods in Applied Sciences  
Utilizing game theory, we propose a framework for understanding the types of interactions that may take place and their effect on the design optimization formulation.  ...  This framework is demonstrated for a simple example of interactions between an aircraft designer and an airline.  ...  We can express this problem using a decision tree (cf. Fig. 2) , known in game theory as an extensive form game [1] .  ...

Let's Share: A Game-Theoretic Framework for Resource Sharing in Mobile Edge Clouds [article]

Faheem Zafari, Kin K. Leung, Don Towsley, Prithwish Basu, Ananthram Swami, Jian Li
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We model resource sharing as a multi-objective optimization problem and present a solution framework based on Cooperative Game Theory (CGT).  ...  We prove that for a monotonic, non-decreasing utility function, the game is canonical and convex. Hence, the core is not empty and the grand coalition is stable.  ...  The U.S. and U.K. Governments are authorized to reproduce and distribute reprints for Government purposes notwithstanding any copy-right notation hereon.  ...

Convergence Performance Of Sinr And Sir Utilities For A Distributed Resource Allocation Game

S.S Prasad, Rithika Baruah, A Siddharth
2011 International Journal of Wireless & Mobile Networks  
Supermodularity conditions are fundamental constraints for global convergence of utilities in a pricing game which have been previously defined.  ...  In such networks, the decisions taken by the users are based on perceived measures or statistics which are collected dynamically. Decision taken by one node affects and influences the other nodes.  ...  In the following sections, the problem of the distributed wireless resource allocation game is formulated as a non-cooperative game, the mathematical model for the problem within an assumed system framework  ...
