Algorithmic Game Theory: Foundations and New Directions (ADVANCE-AGT)
Start date: Aug 1, 2013, End date: Jul 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The last decade has seen a surprisingly rich interplay between economics, computer science, and game theory, and a new discipline, algorithmic game theory, has evolved. I propose to conduct research on subjects that will advance state of art in this evolving discipline. First, study mechanisms for players with non-standard utility structures, better describing the actual way that players behave in reality. Second, make advancement in truthful scheduling, a core theoretical model with many important open problems whose solution is key to advancing the entire field. Third, game theoretic aspects of social networks. As social networks are key in today's reality, research on this topic will broaden the horizons of our scientific field. I propose to conduct this research at UC Berkeley, under the supervision of Prof. Christos Papadimitriou, one of the founding fathers of algorithmic game theory. Such a training period at current time will help me to gain a more senior position in my community. At the end of the period I will return to Technion where I am a faculty member, where I will head a research group on this subject. The knowledge that I will accumulate at Berkeley is essential to the successful formation of the group.
