Seminar in WS 2016/2017
Markets, Algorithms, Incentives, and Networks

Content

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in topics at the intersection of economics and computer science, as witnessed by the continued rapid rise of research areas such as algorithmic game theory and computational social choice. This development is due to the emergence of computational networks such as the Internet as well as the need to get a grip on algorithmic questions in economics. In this seminar, we will deal with both the theoretical foundations as well as their computational properties and possible applications.

The seminar will mostly be based on the book Economics and Computation by David C. Parkes and Sven Seuken, which will be available for download for participants of the seminar.  

The target audience for this seminar are master students and bachelor students after the 2nd semester.
