Upcoming Speakers:

Thursday 23 October - Elizabeth Baldwin| (LSE)
The geometry of auctions and competitive equilibrium with indivisible goods
In order to develop new auctions for related but different indivisible goods, we study how an agent's demand changes as prices change. Simple geometric properties translate directly to economic properties, providing a new taxonomy for agents' valuations, and new results about when competitive equilibrium exists.

This is joint work with Paul Klemperer (Oxford University).

Stopping games with termination rates

Multiplayer stopping game with termination rates are continuous-time stopping games in which when some players stop at the time interval $[t,t+dt)$, the game does not terminate with probability 1, but rather stops with some probability, which is of the order of $dt$ and may depend on time and on the set of players who stop at that time. We prove that every multiplayer stopping game with termination rates admits an $\ep$-equilibrium, for every $\ep > 0$.
