© 2017 Elsevier LtdWe consider the evolution of fairness and coalition formation in a three-person ultimatum game in which the coalition value depends on its size. Traditional game theory, which assumes selfish and rational players, predicts the l...

© 2017 Elsevier B.V.We study manipulation via endowments in a market in an auction setting with multiple goods. In the market, there are buyers whose valuations are their private information, and a seller whose set of endowments is her private inf...

© 2017 Elsevier B.V.This paper studies a first price package auction in which multiple sellers participate in addition to multiple buyers. We generalize the notion of the profit-target strategy which is first introduced as a truthful strategy in a...

This paper studies how a matching rule affects the evolution of fairness in the ultimatum game. Gale et al. (Games Econ Behav 8: 56-90, 1995) show that under the random matching rule, a partially fair imperfect Nash equilibrium in which all propos...

We study a new monotonicity problem in combinatorial auctions called goods revenue monotonicity, which requires that the auctioneer earn no more revenue by dropping goods from the endowments.Although no mechanism satisfies goods revenue monotonici...
