How Computer Science Informs Modern Auction Design

Tim Roughgarden: How Computer Science Informs Modern Auction Design
Room to be confirmed

Tim Roughgarden, Stanford University

Abstract: Economists have studied the theory and practice of auctions
for decades. How can computer science contribute? Using the recent
U.S. FCC double-auction for wireless spectrum as a case
study, I'll illustrate the many answers: novel auction formats,
algorithms for NP-hard problems, approximation guarantees for simple
auctions, and communication complexity-based impossibility results.
