On Nash Equilibria for a Network Creation Game
Susanne Albers, Stefan Eilts, Eyal Even-Dar, Yishay Mansour, Liam Roditty
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/2560767

We study a basic network creation game proposed by Fabrikant et al. [2003]. In this game, each player (vertex) can create links (edges) to other players at a cost of α per edge. The goal of every player is to minimize the sum...

Goodness-of-Fit Measures for Revealed Preference Tests: Complexity Results and Algorithms
Bart Smeulders, Frits C. R. Spieksma, Laurens Cherchye, Bram De Rock
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/2560793

We provide results on the computational complexity of goodness-of-fit measures (i.e., Afriat’s efficiency index, Varian’s efficiency vector-index, and the Houtman-Maks index) associated with several revealed preference axioms (i.e.,...
