A Learning Approach to Mechanism Design in Grid Resource Allocation
In this article a new algorithm for grid resource allocation based upon the theory of Algorithmic Mechanism Design (AMD) is presented. This algorithm is targeted at minimizing cost...

Budget Feasible Mechanisms
We study a novel class of mechanism design problems in which the outcomes are constrained by the payments. This basic class of mechanism design problems captures many common econom...

An Optimal Dynamic Mechanism for Multi-Armed Bandit Processes
We consider the problem of revenue-optimal dynamic mechanism design in settings where agents' types evolve over time as a function of their (both public and private) experien...

Complexity of Mechanism Design
The aggregation of conflicting preferences is a central problem in multiagent systems. The key difficulty is that the agents may report their preferences insincerely. Mechanism de...

Mechanism Design for Single Leader Stackelberg Problems and Application to Procurement Auction Design
In this paper, we focus on mechanism design for single leader Stackelberg problems, which are a special case of hierarchical decision making problems in which a distinguished agent...

Reducing mechanism design to algorithm design via machine learning
We use techniques from sample-complexity in machine learning to reduce problems of incentive-compatible mechanism design to standard algorithmic questions, for a broad class of re...

An Improved Randomized Truthful Mechanism for Scheduling Unrelated Machines
We study the scheduling problem on unrelated machines in the mechanism design setting. This problem was proposed and studied in the seminal paper of Nisan and

Fault tolerant mechanism design
We introduce the notion of fault tolerant mechanism design, which extends the standard game theoretic framework of mechanism design to allow for uncertainty about execution. Speci...

Evolutionary mechanism design: a review
Abstract The advent of large-scale distributed systems poses unique engineering challenges. In open systems such as the internet it is not possible to prescribe the behaviour of al...

The Power of Preemption in Economic Online Markets
Abstract. In distributed computer networks where resources are under decentralized control, selfish users will generally not work towards one common goal, such as maximizing the o...
