Equilibria for two parallel links: The strong price of anarchy versus the price of anarchy
Following recent interest in the strong price of anarchy (SPOA), we consider this measure, as well as the well known price of anarchy (POA) for the job scheduling problem on two u...

The Efficiency of Optimal Taxes
It is well known that the selfish behavior of users in a network can be regulated through the imposition of the so-called optimal taxes on the network edges. Any traffic equilibriu...

Bayesian ignorance
We quantify the effect of Bayesian ignorance by comparing the social cost obtained in a Bayesian game by agents with local views to the expected social cost of agents having glob...

The Price of Anarchy for Polynomial Social Cost
Abstract. In this work, we consider an interesting variant of the wellstudied KP model [18] for selfish routing that reflects some influence from the much older Wardrop model [3...

The price of anarchy of finite congestion games
We consider the price of anarchy of pure Nash equilibria in congestion games with linear latency functions. For asymmetric games, the price of anarchy of maximum social cost is ( ...
