The Adwords Problem with Strict Capacity Constraints

Umang Bhaskar, Ajil Jalal, Rahul Vaze, Marc Herbstritt
2016 Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science  
The weight of edges incident to any server can be at most the server capacity. Our problem is related to the adwords problem, where the assignment to a server is allowed to exceed its capacity.  ...  In many applications, however, server capacities are strict and partially-served requests are of no use, motivating the problem we study.  ...  We are grateful to Anupam Gupta for helpful discussions on the problem, as well as to the anonymous referees of a previous version of this paper for their constructive comments.  ...

Online Budgeted Allocation with General Budgets [article]

Nathaniel Kell, Debmalya Panigrahi
2016 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we give a complete characterization of the ADWORDS problem for general advertising budgets.  ...  In the most general setting, we show that, unlike in the single-budget ADWORDS problem, obtaining a constant competitive ratio is impossible and give asymptotically tight upper and lower bounds.  ...  With this motivation, we introduce a generalization of the ADWORDS problem that we call ADWORDS with general budgets (denoted ADGENERAL).  ...

Bayesian Mechanism Design

Aranyak Mehta
2013 Foundations and Trends® in Theoretical Computer Science  
Adwords and Display Ads are unrelated problems, since Adwords has a constraint on the budget, while Display Ads has a constraint on the capacity.  ...  Connect a source to all vertices in U with capacity 2 on the edges, and connect a sink from all vertices in V , again with capacity 2. Direct all edges in E from U to V with capacity 1.  ...

Polyhedral Clinching Auctions and the Adwords Polytope [article]

Gagan Goel and Vahab Mirrokni and Renato Paes Leme
2012 arXiv   pre-print
A central issue in applying auction theory in practice is the problem of dealing with budget-constrained agents.  ...  In particular, our characterization of the AdWords auction as polymatroidal constraints might be of independent interest.  ...  Satisfying budget constraints while keeping incentive compatibility and efficiency is a challenging problem, and it becomes even harder in the presence of complex combinatorial constraints over the set  ...

Characterizing Optimal Adword Auctions [article]

Garud Iyengar, Anuj Kumar
2006 arXiv   pre-print
We begin with a general problem formulation which allows the privately known valuation per click to be a function of both the identity of the advertiser and the slot.  ...  We present a number of models for the adword auctions used for pricing advertising slots on search engines such as Google, Yahoo! etc.  ...  linear programming (LP) relaxation of (8) obtained by relaxing the constraint X ij ∈ {0, 1} to X ij ∈ [0, 1] is equivalent to a maximum weight flow problem on bipartite graph with unit capacities.  ...

Adwords in a Panorama [article]

Zhiyi Huang, Qiankun Zhang, Yuhao Zhang
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The algorithm builds on several ingredients, including a combination of the online primal dual framework and the configuration linear program of matching problems recently explored by Huang and Zhang (  ...  Three decades ago, Karp, Vazirani, and Vazirani (STOC 1990) defined the online matching problem and gave an optimal 1-1/e≈ 0.632-competitive algorithm.  ...  The constraint holds with strict inequality: k =1 ∆α( ) + ∞ =k ∆β( ) = ∆α(1) + ∆β(1) + ∞ =2 ∆β( ) = ∆x(1) + 1 2 + γ ∞ =2 ∆x( ) = 1 2 + 1 4 + 2γ > 3 + 2γ 6 + 2γ .  ...

The Online Stochastic Generalized Assignment Problem [chapter]

Saeed Alaei, MohammadTaghi Hajiaghayi, Vahid Liaghat
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present a 1 − 1 √ k -competitive algorithm for the online stochastic generalized assignment problem under the assumption that no item takes up more than 1 k fraction of the capacity of any bin.  ...  Both value and size of an item may depend on the bin in which the item is placed; the size of an item is revealed only after it has been placed in a bin; distribution information is available about the  ...  Other variations, such as soft capacity constraints, have also been considered for which we refer the reader to [5, 13, 16] .

Clinching Auctions Beyond Hard Budget Constraints [article]

Gagan Goel and Vahab Mirrokni and Renato Paes Leme
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Incentive compatibility and feasibility with respect to ability-to-pay constraints are direct consequences of the clinching framework.  ...  Yet, real auction systems (such as Google AdWords) allow more sophisticated constraints on agents' ability to pay, such as average budgets.  ...  his maximum capacity.  ...

Markets for Efficient Public Good Allocation with Social Distancing [article]

2021 arXiv   pre-print
Furthermore, to account for additional constraints we introduce a social convex optimization problem where we perturb the budgets of agents such that the KKT conditions of the perturbed social problem  ...  To design these mechanisms, we leverage the theory of Fisher markets, wherein each agent in the economy is endowed with an artificial currency budget that they can spend to avail public goods.  ...  This article solely reflects the opinions of its authors and not NSF, TRI, or any other entity.  ...

How to differentiate by price: Proposal for a five-dimensional model

2013 European Management Journal  
This article offers a more integrated perspective, derived from earlier theory as well as discussions in a collaborative research project with the international telecom company Ericsson.  ...  The purpose of this article is to analyse the repertoire of possible price models that organisations may deploy for their products and services.  ...  Not only is the pace of technological development rapid (as predicted already by Turing, 1950) , with the consequence that cost and physical size of IT capacity keep falling.  ...
