A Game Theoretic Analysis of Public Goods Allocation in P2P Networks

2015 KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems  
This paper presents a game theoretic approach to analyze the public goods (PGs) allocation in peer-to-peer (p2p) networks.  ...  Secondly, based on the Walker mechanism, we analyze the feasibility and prove the validity for the same allocation problem, which meets to Bowen-Lindahl-Samuelson equilibrium and achieves Pareto efficiency  ...  In this paper, we propose a simple and efficient model to allocate the PGs; we also theoretical solve this model with a mature technology.  ...

Game-theoretic Resource Allocation Methods for Device-to-Device (D2D) Communication [article]

Lingyang Song, Dusit Niyato, Zhu Han, Ekram Hossain
2014 arXiv   pre-print
The D2D devices can compete or cooperate with each other to reuse the radio resources in D2D networks. Therefore, resource allocation and access for D2D communication can be treated as games.  ...  The theories behind these games provide a variety of mathematical tools to effectively model and analyze the individual or group behaviors of D2D users.  ...  Also, game theoretic models can be developed to obtain solutions for channel assignment, power control, and cooperation enforcement among D2D users.  ...

Game Theoretical Analysis of Cooperative Sourcing Scenarios

D. Beimborn, H. Lamberti, T. Weitzel

How to allocate costs within the outsourcing value web? We present a micro economic model for analyzing cooperative sourcing decisions.  ...  Still, a small game theoretic experiment indicates that deciders not knowing about the theoretical results tend to choose inefficient allocations leading to instable sourcing networks.  ...  The research model is developed in section 4 and used in section 5 for an analysis of cost allocation mechanisms for cooperative sourcing.  ...

Negotiation and cooperation in multi-agent environments

Sarit Kraus
1997 Artificial Intelligence  
There are a variety of other multi-entity environments in which the entities coordinate their activity and cooperate. Among them are groups of people, animals, particles, and computers.  ...  Cooperation-not merely coordination-may improve the performance of the individual agents or the overall behavior of the system they form.  ...  Although there are many differences between particles and computational systems, we have shown that the classical mechanics approach yields a model that enables feasible cooperation in very large agent-systems  ...

In this survey, we provide a comprehensive survey on the game models (e.g., noncooperative/cooperative, static/dynamic, and complete/incomplete information) developed for different multiple access schemes  ...  Game theory also enables us to model the selfish/malicious behaviour of nodes, and subsequently design the punishment or defense mechanisms for robust multiple access in wireless networks.  ...  To avoid this problem, incompletely-cooperative game models are used in which the nodes are enforced to cooperate in the system by using a penalizing mechanism.  ...
