Raffle-Based Incentive Schemes for Congestion Management
Using a game-theoretic model, we show that both schemes can achieve an optimal level of decongestion at a unique Nash equilibrium. We compare the schemes' sensitivity to uncertainty of the users' utilities and exhibit an interesting self-tuning property of the raffle-based scheme. Our model is based on a nonatomic game with an infinite number of players. We show that this corresponds in terms of equilibrium to the limit of an atomic game when the number of players goes to infinity.
