Matching structure and bargaining outcomes in buyer–seller networks

Arnold Polanski
2015 Social Choice and Welfare  
We examine the relationship between the matching structure of a bipartite (buyer-seller) network and the (expected) shares of the unit surplus that each connected pair in this network can create.  ...  This theorem characterizes the structure of maximum matchings in an undirected graph.  ...  For simplicity, we will often refer to G as a buyer-seller network and to the nodes in the set B (S) as buyers (sellers).  ...

Regarding prices, we detect neither premium price setting nor discounting among seller-buyer matches of the same ethnic groups relative to those of different ethnic groups.  ...  Using personnel and transaction data obtained from two Canadian auto dealerships, we examine whether ethnic matches between salespersons and customers affect sales prices and the number of units sold by  ...  Therefore, actual seller-buyer ethnic matches are not controlled for.  ...

Spectrum Matching

Yanjiao Chen, Linshan Jiang, Haofan Cai, Jin Zhang, Baochun Li
2016 2016 IEEE 36th International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS)  
In this paper, we firstly formulate the spectrum matching problem as a many-to-one matching with peer effects, i.e., a buyer's utility is affected by other buyers who are matched to the same seller.  ...  In this paper, we take a different and new perspective, proposing to use matching as an alternative tool to realize DSA in a distributed way for a free market, which consists of only buyers and sellers  ...  A spectrum coalition consists of a seller and the buyers matched to this seller, or includes a single unmatched seller or buyer.  ...

Using Reinforcement Learning to Study Platform Economies under Market Shocks [article]

Xintong Wang, Gary Qiurui Ma, Alon Eden, Clara Li, Alexander Trott, Stephan Zheng, David C. Parkes
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Across many industries, platforms leverage digital infrastructure to efficiently match producers and consumers, dynamically set prices, and enable economies of scale.  ...  We use deep reinforcement learning (RL) to model the pricing and matching behavior of a platform that optimizes for revenue and various socially-aware objectives.  ...  A buyer can transact off-platform with a known seller and also match on-platform with other sellers.  ...

Traders, Courts and the Home Bias Puzzle

Alessandro Turrini, Tanguy van Ypersele
2002 Social Science Research Network  
Using a matchig model of trade, we show that the home bias is associated with both less searching foreign sellers in the home market and a lower probability of cross-border matches being accepted.  ...  In industries characterized by high turnover legal costs may reduce trade because reducing the mass of searching foreign sellers and increasing at the same time that of searching domestic sellers.  ...  Matching Buyers and sellers are randomly matched and separated at each instant of time. Hence, in each moment, both sellers and buyers are either matched or searching.  ...

A Matching Game for Data Trading in Operator-Supervised User-Provided Networks [article]

Beatriz Lorenzo, F. Javier Gonzalez-Castano
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We formulate the buyers and sellers association for data trading as a matching game.  ...  In this game, buyers and sellers rank one another based on preference functions that capture buyers' data demand and QoS requirements, sellers' available data and energy resources.  ...  We formulate the buyer-seller data trading association as a matching game.  ...

Urbanization, inequality and property prices: Equilibrium pricing and transaction in the Chinese housing market

Teng Ge, Tao Wu
2017 China economic review  
Heterogeneous buyers and homogeneous sellers randomly search for partners to trade in a frictional property market.  ...  Empirical observations argue for the development of China's property market through evolution from a pooled matching equilibrium to an elitist matching equilibrium.  ...  In this one-shot game, contact is consummated into a transaction of a house from seller to buyer (match of a buyer and a seller) upon a mutual agreement, so the game ends.  ...

2018 Social Science Research Network  
The platform designs what buyer information the sellers observe before deciding to form a match.  ...  Short-lived buyers arrive to a platform over time and randomly match with sellers. The sellers stay at the platform and sequentially decide whether to accept incoming requests.  ...  Buyers leave after the match dissolves Figure 1 : Matching process. Buyers arrive at exogenous rate β and contact available sellers. If rejected, a buyer leaves the platform.  ...

Designing a strategic bipartite matching market

Rahul Jain
2007 2007 46th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control  
We consider a version of the Gale-Shapley matching problem and the Shapley-Shubik assignment game. It involves matching n buyers with m sellers.  ...  The matching may also involve an exchange of numeraire to be paid by the buyers, and to the sellers. The players are strategic.  ...  Thus, buyer 1 matched with seller 1, buyer 2 matches with seller 2, and so on until k since ρ ij = σ ij ≤ 0 for i, j > k. Thus,î = i andǰ = j, and buyers i > k and sellers j > k do not match.  ...

2014 Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization  
Collective seller earnings suffer. Who does the choosing, that is, whether buyers select sellers or sellers select buyers, further impacts prices and therefore relative earnings.  ...  Results are presented from experimental markets in which paired buyers and sellers negotiate the repeated sale of units.  ...  Buyers selected sellers on a first-come basis and the selection process continued until all sellers were matched; the last unmatched seller was automatically assigned to the last unmatched buyer.  ...
