Diamond Dicing
If instead agent i is asked for a single bid bi , and his bid for slot j is derived by multiplying it with a slot-specific click-through rate αj , the zero-revenue equilibria are eliminated.
Simplicity-Expressiveness Tradeoffs in Mechanism Design
More surprisingly, this simplification does not introduce new equilibria (even when αj is not correct for every agent i), so minimum revenue over all Nash equilibria is strictly greater for the simplification than for the original mechanism.
Simplicity-Expressiveness Tradeoffs in Mechanism Design
Milgrom does not consider the potential loss in efficiency or revenue that can occur when agents are ignorant of each other’s valuations when deciding how to bid within a simplified bidding language.
Simplicity-Expressiveness Tradeoffs in Mechanism Design
Particular relaxations we consider in this paper are the preservation of the VCG outcome, i.e., the outcome obtained in the dominant strategy equilibrium of the fully expressive VCG mechanism, and the existence of an equilibrium with a certain amount of social welfare or revenue relative to the VCG outcome.
Simplicity-Expressiveness Tradeoffs in Mechanism Design
In the context of sponsored search, one reason to prefer a simplification is to preclude the zero revenue equilibrium discussed above.
Simplicity-Expressiveness Tradeoffs in Mechanism Design
In addition, we observe that the simplifications can still suffer arbitrarily low revenue in some equilibrium, in comparison with the VCG revenue.
Simplicity-Expressiveness Tradeoffs in Mechanism Design
For simplified VCG mechanisms, we obtain a strong negative result: every simplification of VCG that supports the (efficient) VCG outcome in some equilibrium also has an equilibrium in which revenue is arbitrarily smaller than in the VCG outcome.
