In the seminar we will get familiar with the current original research in the area of algorithmic game theory by reading and presenting selected research papers in that area.
Develop an understanding of selected problems of current interest in the area of algorithmic game theory, and a practice of a scientific presentation.
Study and understanding of selected topics of current interest in algorithmic game theory such as: Complexity Results (class PPAD, PLS, NP), Sponsored Search, Approximation Algorithms via Algorithmic Game Theory, Price of Anarchy, New paradigms of computation (e.g., envy-fee, truthful), Mechanism Design.
Selected research articles.
