I have one question about the auction algorithm as developed by Bertsekas et al in order to solve assignment problems.
In (very) short, considering a same number of agents and objects, the algorithm consists in two phases, the [View full text and thread]

how would you compute an equilibrium for an allpay auction with two bidders, where if x1 and x2 are the two bids, the probability of winning is xi/(x1+x2)? it looks like there is no pure strategy equilibrium, but then i'm not sure how [View full text and thread]
If each person’s private valuation is common knowledge, then in the equilibrium all the persons with valuation greater than v101 will arrive simultaneously at the waiting line at the time that waiting cost is equal to v101. All others [View full text and thread]
