We model social choice problems in which self interested agents with private utility functions have to agree on values for a set of variables subject to side constraints. The goal is to implement the efficient solution, maximizing the total utility across all agents. Existing techniques for this problem fall into two groups. Distributed constraint optimization algorithms can find the solution without any central authority but are vulnerable to manipulation. Incentive compatible mechanisms can… CONTINUE READING
