Description Table of Contents
In the last few years game theory has had a substantial impact on computer science, especially on Internet- and e-commerce-related issues. Algorithmic Game Theory develops the central ideas and results of this new and exciting area in a clear and succinct manner. More than 40 of the top researchers in this field have written chapters that go from the foundations to the state of the art. Basic chapters on algorithmic methods for equilibria, mechanism design and combinatorial auctions are followed by chapters on important game theory applications such as incentives and pricing, cost sharing, information markets and cryptography and security. This definitive work will set the tone of research for the next few years and beyond. Students, researchers, and practitioners alike need to learn more about these fascinating theoretical developments and their widespread practical application.

• First book to cover the whole spectrum of algorithmic game theory • Contributions by all the major researchers in the field • Applied chapters by researchers and consultants at major firms such as Yahoo, Lehman Brothers, IBM and Microsoft
