Payment Schemes from Limited Information with Applications in Distributed Computing [article]

Nikolaj I. Schwartzbach
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We show that finding an optimal payment scheme for games of perfect information is -complete, and conjecture it to be -hard for games of imperfect information.  ...  We propose a generic mechanism for incentivizing behavior in an arbitrary finite game using payments.  ...  Our definition generalizes t-robust subgame perfect equilibria for finite games of perfect information.  ...

Learning from Experts: A Survey [article]

Irene Valsecchi
2008 arXiv   pre-print
According to the game-theoretic approach expertise is a case of asymmetric information between the expert, who is the better informed agent, and the non-expert, who is either a decision-maker or an evaluator  ...  The survey is concerned with the issue of information transmission from experts to non-experts. Two main approaches to the use of experts can be traced.  ...  For the case in which agent E is required to send a message after each observation, Li shows that in perfect Bayesian equilibria inconsistent reports within the same period can signal ability, provided  ...

Recent Advances in Structural Econometric Modeling: Dynamics, Product Positioning and Entry

Jean-Pierre Dubé, K. Sudhir, Andrew Ching, Gregory S. Crawford, Michaela Draganska, Jeremy T. Fox, Wesley Hartmann, Günter J. Hitsch, V. Brian Viard, Miguel Villas-Boas, Naufel Vilcassim
2005 Marketing letters  
Structural analysis of these consumer and firm decisions raise a number of substantial computational challenges. We discuss the computational challenges as well as specific empirical applications.  ...  For example, incorporating consumer and firm dynamics may help explain patterns in our data that are not well-captured by static models.  ...  This outcome simplifies the numerical computation of the location equilibrium in comparison with a game of complete information.  ...

MULTIPLE EQUILIBRIA AND DETERRENCE IN AIRLINE MARKETS

Federico Ciliberto, Zhou Zhang
2016 Economic Inquiry  
We consider a menu of three alternative games that describe the strategic interaction among airlines: simultaneous and sequential move games, and a sequential move game with deterrence investments.  ...  We model the interaction among airlines as a repeated static game, where we allow for a very general form of heterogeneity.  ...  The …rst game is a repeated static simultaneous move entry game with complete information.  ...

Regulatory Competition in Network Interconnection Pricing

Per J. Agrell, Jerome Pouyet
2008 Review of Network Economics  
The model features two countries managing domestic infrastructures, used simultaneously for downstream international service provision.  ...  Illustrations from European network regulation policy for energy and rail are presented.  ...  Since transfers are socially costly, IM i has no incentives to provide his infrastructure with a subsidy.  ...

Would You Like to be a Prosumer? Information Revelation, Personalization and Price Discrimination in Electronic Markets

Martin Bandulet, Karl Morasch
2005 International Journal of the Economics of Business  
Will customers provide the information necessary for personalization?  ...  Assuming that a consumer can control the amount of information revealed, we analyse how his decision interacts with the pricing strategy of a monopolist who may abuse the information to obtain a larger  ...  However, a manufacturer or a national service provider has until recently been restricted to sell a standardized product or at most a limited number of differentiated goods or services.  ...

On Spectrum Selection Games in Cognitive Radio Networks

Ilaria Malanchini, Matteo Cesana, Nicola Gatti
2009 GLOBECOM 2009 - 2009 IEEE Global Telecommunications Conference  
Numerical results are reported to assess the quality of the game equilibria.  ...  In this paper, a game theoretic framework is proposed to evaluate spectrum management functionalities in Cognitive Radio Networks.  ...  Due to the impressive number of possible subgames and the unavailability of information over the future states to users, the computation of a subgame perfect equilibrium is not practical in our case.  ...

Quality of service provision in noncooperative networks with diverse user requirements

K. Park, M. Sitharam, S. Chen
2000 Decision Support Systems  
For certain "resource-plentiful" systems, however, we show that the world indeed can be nice with Nash equilibria, Pareto optima, and system optima collapsing into a single class.  ...  We present a comprehensive analysis of the noncooperative multi-class QoS provision game, giving a complete characterization of Nash equilibria and their existence criteria, and show under what conditions  ...  If J + i = ∅, J * i takes on a surrogate role. The next lemma gives a simple sufficiency condition for 2-application/2-service class games in which Nash equilibria do not exist.  ...

1988 Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series A (Statistics in Society)  
Service centers have to be located in G in order to provide service to the players. The set Q = {q 1 , .•• ,qt} denotes the possible locations for service centers.  ...  (ii) Generic extensive games with perfect information have a unique subgame perfect equilibrium.  ...  We conclude that this model provides a "noncooperative" foundation for the use of nonsymmetric Nash bargaining solutions.  ...

The strategic timing incentives of commercial radio stations: An empirical analysis using multiple equilibria

Andrew Sweeting
2009 The Rand Journal of Economics  
This paper estimates an incomplete information timing game to examine stations' equilibrium timing incentives.  ...  It shows how identification can be aided by the existence of multiple equilibria when appropriate data are available.  ...  I provide further evidence for these differences in the current paper, which comes out of the estimation of a more formal timing game. I model stations as playing an incomplete information game.  ...
