Composable Mechanisms and Price of Anarchy in Auctions

Speaker: Eva Tardos, Cornell University
Location: Baxter B125

We consider auctions as games and we discuss how to analyze such games, and providing robust guarantees for their performance even when players participate in multiple  auctions, have valuations that are complex functions of multiple outcomes, and are using learning strategies to deal with an uncertain environment.
