Efficiency of Scalar-Parameterized Mechanisms

  title={Efficiency of Scalar-Parameterized Mechanisms},
  author={Ramesh Johari and John N. Tsitsiklis},
  journal={Operations Research},
We consider the problem of allocating a fixed amount of an infinitely divisible resource among multiple competing, fully rational users. We study the efficiency guarantees that are possible when we restrict to mechanisms that satisfy certain scalability constraints motivated by large scale communication networks; in particular, we restrict attention to mechanisms where users are restricted to one-dimensional strategy spaces. We first study the efficiency guarantees possible when the mechanism… CONTINUE READING
