Summary of presentation:
We provide an introduction to several network economic problems. We will focus in three applications: matching markets, traffic (routing) problems and resource allocation problems. We will introduce mechanisms (algorithms) that satisfy desirable properties like efficiency, non-manipulability (incentive compatibility) and fairness.
Hope to see you there!
