Sensitivity Analysis for Convex Separable Optimization over Integral Polymatroids [article]

Tobias Harks and Max Klimm and Britta Peis
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We apply these sensitivity results to a class of non-cooperative polymatroid games and derive the existence of pure Nash equilibria.  ...  Under convexity and a regularity assumption on the functional dependency of the cost function with respect to the parameters, we show that reoptimization after a change in parameters can be done by elementary  ...  We thank Satoru Fujishige for helpful suggestions improving the presentation of the paper.  ...

Electronic Markets and Auctions (Dagstuhl Seminar 13461)

Yishay Mansour, Benny Moldovanu, Noam Nisan, Berthold Vöcking, Marc Herbstritt
2014 Dagstuhl Reports  
From the computer science perspective, with the advent of the Internet, there has been a significant amount of work in Algorithmic Game Theory focusing on computational aspects of electronic markets and  ...  The main goal of this seminar was to study topics related to electronic markets and auctions both from the computational perspective and from a game-theoretic and economic one.  ...  The core of such a game contains all fair allocations of ν(V ) among the players of V , and is well-known to be non-empty iff graph G is stable.  ...

On the Nisan-Ronen conjecture for submodular valuations

George Christodoulou, Elias Koutsoupias, Annamária Kovács
2020 Proceedings of the 52nd Annual ACM SIGACT Symposium on Theory of Computing  
For the scheduling problem with such cost functions, we give a lower bound of Ω( √ n) on the approximation ratio of incentive compatible deterministic mechanisms.  ...  We consider incentive compatible mechanisms for a domain that is very close to the domain of scheduling n unrelated machines: the single exception is that the valuation of just one machine is submodular  ...  . , n − 1 are truncated affine functions in s i .  ...

Sen Pei, Jiannan Wang, Flaviano Morone, Hernán A Makse
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The integrity and functionality of many real-world complex systems hinge on a small set of pivotal nodes, or influencers.  ...  We conclude the review with a summary and an outlook.  ...  For a general class of spreading models including ICMs, the influence function σ(S) was proven to satisfy the characteristic of the so-called submodularity [144, 145] -A function σ(·) is submodular if  ...

Silvestre, Joaquim AB We propose a new framework for modelling games in continuous time. Continuous time is viewed as "discretetime, but with a grid that is infinitely fine."  ...  AB This paper defines two types of asymmetry in business cycles: steepness and deepness. Steepness refers to cycles in which the slope of contractions exceeds the slope of expansions.  ...  A new class of nogap exact games is proposed; it is dual to Sharkey's concept of exact games, with a large core.  ...
