Sequential rationality in cryptographic protocols
Ronen Gradwohl, Noam Livne, Alon Rosen
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/2399187.2399189

Much of the literature on rational cryptography focuses on analyzing the strategic properties of cryptographic protocols. However, due to the presence of computationally-bounded players and the asymptotic nature of cryptographic security, a...

A game-theoretic analysis of the ESP game
Shaili Jain, David C. Parkes
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/2399187.2399190

“Games with a Purpose” are interactive games that users play because they are fun, with the added benefit that the outcome of play is useful work. The ESP game, developed byy von Ahn and Dabbish [2004], is an example of such a game...

Optimal payments in dominant-strategy mechanisms for single-parameter domains
Victor Naroditskiy, Maria Polukarov, Nicholas R. Jennings
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/2399187.2399191

We study dominant-strategy mechanisms in allocation domains where agents have one-dimensional types and quasilinear utilities. Taking an allocation function as an input, we present an algorithmic technique for finding optimal payments in a class...
