Almost-dominant Strategy Implementation

  title={Almost-dominant Strategy Implementation},
  author={James Schummer},
Though some environments yield reasonable allocation rules that are implementable in dominant strategies (i.e., strategy-proof), a significant number yield impossibility results. On the other hand, while there are general possibility results for implementation in Nash or Bayesian equilibrium, these equilibrium concepts make strong assumptions about the players’ knowledge. Since such assumptions may not be practical in various design scenarios, we formulate a solution concept built on one… CONTINUE READING
