Designing mechanisms for reliable internetbased computing
(2008)In this work, using a gametheoretic approach, costsensitive mechanisms that lead to reliable Internetbased computing are designed. In particular, we consider Internetbased masterworker computations, where a master ...

Discretetime stochastic minimax control of partially observable systems
(2001)This paper presents a sample path optimization technique, as an alternative to the ensample average in formulating and solving stochastic minimax dynamic games. The stochastic games are nonlinear, discretetime, and partially ...

Article
Extending argumentation to make good decisions
(2009)Argumentation has been acknowledged as a powerful mechanism for automated decision making. In this context several recent works have studied the problem of accommodating preference information in argumentation. The majority ...

Article
Facets of the fully mixed Nash equilibrium conjecture
(2010)In this work, we continue the study of the many facets of the Fully Mixed Nash Equilibrium Conjecture, henceforth abbreviated as the FMNE Conjecture, in selfish routing for the special case of n identical users over two ...

Article
Finitedimensional nonlinear output feedback dynamic games and bounds for sector nonlinearities
(1999)In general, nonlinear output feedback dynamic games are infinitedimensional. This paper treats a class of minimax games when the nonlinearities enter the dynamics of the unobservable states. An information state approach ...

Article
Finitetime disturbance attenuation control problem for singularly perturbed discretetime systems
(1998)In this paper we consider the problem of finitetime H∞optimal control of linear, singularly perturbed, discretetime systems. The problem is addressed from the game theoretic approach. This leads to a singularly perturbed, ...

Article
Frequency domain and dynamic game methods for actuator/sensor selection in systems with sector nonlinearities
(2001)The purpose of this note is to provide a method for placing actuators and sensors in systems with nonlinear dynamics wherein the choices for actuator and sensor locations are such that the resulting system is rendered ...

Book
Game theory in communication networks: cooperative resolution of interactive networking scenarios
(CRC Press, 2013)"Focusing on heterogeneous networks, this book addresses important resource management and security issues found in networks and uses theoretical tools to model them. Although it explores network design and management from ...

A game theorybased approach to reducing interference in dense deployments of home wireless networks
(2011)Urban residential areas are becoming increasingly dense with more and more home networks being deployed in close proximity. The paper considers a dense urban residential area where each house/unit has its own wireless ...

Article
How many attackers can selfish defenders catch?
(2013)In a distributed system with attacks and defenses, both attackers and defenders are selfinterested entities. We assume a rewardsharing scheme among interdependent defenders

Article
Information markets for product attributes: A game theoretic, dual pricing mechanism
(2010)We model the availability of information about product attributes in Internetbased markets, focusing on a phenomenon that we term as information deficit (availability of less than perfect information about product attributes) ...

Conference Object
Is online product information availability driven by quality or differentiation?
(Affiliation: The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, United StatesCorrespondence Address: Markopoulos, P. M.The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, United Statesemail: markopou@wharton.upenn.edu, 2005)We present a game theoretic model for the availability of product information in Internet markets, where buyers can search for multiple products in parallel. We use a multiplecircle variation of Salop's "unit circle" model ...

Article
Minimax games for stochastic systems subject to relative entropy uncertainty: Applications to SDEs on Hilbert spaces
(2007)In this paper, we consider minimax games for stochastic uncertain systems with the payoff being a nonlinear functional of the uncertain measure where the uncertainty is measured in terms of relative entropy between the ...

Article
Minimizing expectation plus variance
(2012)We consider strategic games in which each player seeks a mixed strategy to minimize her cost evaluated by a concave valuation V (mapping probability distributions to reals)

Article
Moritz Schlick's evolutionary game theory
(University of Illinois Press, 2023)The early Schlick developed an evolutionary biological account of play. He contrasted play with work. Where work encompasses all activity that is undertaken for the sake of some practical outcome, play renders what was ...

Article
Nash equilibria in discrete routing games with convex latency functions
(2004)We study Nash equilibria in a discrete routing game that combines features of the two most famous models for noncooperative routing, the KP model [16] and the Wardrop model [27]. In our model, users share parallel links. ...

Article
Nash equilibria in discrete routing games with convex latency functions
(2008)In a discrete routing game, each of n selfish users employs a mixed strategy to ship her (unsplittable) traffic over m parallel links. The (expected) latency on a link is determined by an arbitrary nondecreasing, nonconstant ...

Article
Network game with attacker and protector entities
(2005)Consider an information network with harmful procedures called attackers (e.g., viruses)

Article
A network game with attackers and a defender
(2008)Consider an information network with threats called attackers

Article
A new model for selfish routing
(2008)In this work, we introduce and study a new, potentially rich model for selfish routing over noncooperative networks, as an interesting hybridization of the two prevailing such models, namely the KPmodel [E. Koutsoupias, ...
