Day/Time: Tuesday, 6:30-9:20 pm; Place: Bill & Melinda Gates Center for CSE (CSE2), room G4
Analysis of algorithmic and optimization problems using game theoretic principles and ideas from economics, and taking incentives into account. Explores algorithmic and optimization problems where input to the algorithm or participants in the protocol are selfish agents with an interest in the outcome of the algorithm or protocol. Examples include online auctions (such as those used by Google and Facebook), resource allocation (where a set of resources is to be shared among distinct entities with varying degrees of willingness to share or pay), routing and congestion control (where some participants are transmitting data and others own the links and routers) and electronic commerce (where buyers and sellers are exchanging goods, each trying to maximize their own profit).  Video description here.
