On the epi-compactness of equi-lower semi-continuous functions by Adib Bagh( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we show that equi-lsc. functions from a topological vector space X to the extended reals are epi-compact without assuming the local compactness or the second countablity of the underlying space X. We also show that weakly equi-lower semicontinuous functions from a Banach space X to the extended reals are Mosco-compact. Finally, we apply these results to prove the Mosoc-compactness of families of integral functionals that arise in optimization problems

Equilibrium in abstract economies without the lower semi-continuity of the constraint maps( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We use graph convergence of set valued maps to show the existence of an equilibrium for an abstract economy without assuming the lower semi continuity of the constraint maps

New Privacy-Preserving Ascending Auction for Assignment Problems by De Liu( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We introduce a new ascending auction that allocates heterogeneous objects among bidders with purely private unit demands. Our auction design differs from existing dynamic auctions in a number of ways: it economizes on information solicited from bidders by requiring marginal bidders to reveal a single new bid at a time; it uses a transparent price adjustment process; and it allows the seller to set starting prices above his reservation valuations. Despite these new features, (i) the auction stops in a finite time, (ii) sincere bidding is an ex-post Nash equilibrium, (iii) the auction ending prices and revenue depend only on bidders valuations and starting prices, and (iv) the auction is efficient if it starts with the seller's valuations

Existence of Equilibria in Constrained Discontinuous Games by Adib Bagh( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We establish the existence of pure strategy equilibria in games with discontinuous payoffs where the set of feasible actions of each player varies, also in a discontinuous fashion, as a function of the actions of the other players. Such games are used in modeling abstract economies and other games where players share common constraints. Our approach circumvents the difficulties that arise from the presence of discontinuities by modifying the original problem and allowing the players to use strategies that possibly lie outside their feasible sets. We then show that each modified game has "epsilon-equilibria points. Under certain conditions, and as the extent of modification becomes smaller and smaller and " approaches zero, the "epsilon-equilibria points of the modified games will converge to a strategy profile that is an equilibrium of the original game. Hence, we obtain a set of sufficient conditions for the existence of pure equilibria of the original game. We apply our results to a number of classic games that have discontinuous payoffs and discontinuous constraintcorrespondences
Equity-Efficiency Tradeoffs in International Bargaining by Adib Bagh( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper analyzes the outcome of international negotiations between asymmetric countries in the absence of efficient transfers. A main result is that there is a equity-efficiency tradeoff to reducing the flexibility of negotiations in making transfers across countries. Specifically, an increase in the inefficiency of transfers will reduce aggregate global welfare but, when the degree of asymmetry is sufficiently small, can result in a more equitable agreement that benefits the country that is at a bargaining disadvantage. Similarly, we demonstrate that increases in bargaining asymmetry can also make the disadvantaged country better-off at the expense of global welfare. As an application, we show that preventing monetary side-payments in trade negotiations between a large and small country can benefit the small country at the expense of the overall efficiency of the agreement
Doing More with Less Price Discrimination with Three-Part vs. Two-Part Tariffs by Adib Bagh( )

1 edition published in 2008 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Multi-part tariffs, such as menus of two-part tariffs and three-part tariffs, are widely used in industry, especially for pricing of information goods, online services, telecommunications products, etc. This paper examines the effectiveness of these price structures for price discriminating between heterogeneous customers. We show that a relatively small menu of three-part tariffs (3PTs) can be more profitable and, sometimes, socially more desirable than a larger menu (more items) of two-part tariffs (2PTs). Often, a single three-part tariff can beat a menu of multiple two-part tariffs. Moreover, this 3PT menu has lower hidden costs - it can be designed with less information about consumer preferences, relative to the menu of two-part tariffs. The 3PT structure not only produces higher profit, but has lower managerial and decision complexity
