We continue the study of the effects of selfish behavior in the network design problem. We provide new bounds for the price of stabil i y for network design with fair cost allocation for undirected graphs. We conside r th most general case, for which the best known upper bound is the Harmonic number Hn, wheren is the number of agents, and the best previously known lower bound i s 12/7≈ 1.778. We present a nontrivial lower bound of 42 /23≈ 1.8261. Furthermore, we show that for two players, the… CONTINUE READING
