  • Combinatorial auctions can be used to reach efficient resource and task allocations in multiagent systems where the items are complementary or substitutable. Determining the winners is NP- complete and inapproximable, but it was recently shown that optimal search algorithms do very well on average. This paper presents a more sophisticated search algorithm for optimal (and anytime) winner determination, including structural improvements that reduce search tree size, faster data structures, and… CONTINUE READING
