Bid expressiveness and clearing algorithms in multiattribute double auctions

  title={Bid expressiveness and clearing algorithms in multiattribute double auctions},
  author={Yagil Engel and Michael P. Wellman and Kevin M. Lochner},
We investigate the space of two-sided multiattribute auctions, focusing on the relationship between constraints on the offers traders can express through bids, and the resulting computational problem of determining an optimal set of trades. We develop a formal semantic framework for characterizing expressible offers, and show conditions under which the allocation problem can be separated into first identifying optimal pairwise trades and subsequently optimizing combinations of those trades. We… CONTINUE READING
