Description
Gt mechanism design
The workshop will open with overview/perspective talks on algorithmic game theory and the theory and practice of market design; the afternoon will feature a panel on active research areas in the field (again, at the overview level). The next 2 days will consist of introductory mini-course and tutorials, on topics such as game theory, matching, auctions, and mechanism design. The following day will focus on applicable tools and technology, such as lattice theory, limit methods, continuous optimization, and extremal graph theory. The workshop will conclude with a panel discussion on major open problems. Bibliography Zoom Link: https://msri.zoom.us/j/98811505537?pwd=R0ZIMWdsM0JoRXFwcXdvQ2owa1Rsdz09
