Title: New variants of resource-allocation games.

Abstract: Algorithmic Game Theory (AGT) combines algorithmic thinking with game-theoretic, or, more generally, economic concepts. The study of AGT is motivated by the rise of decentralized computer networks, such as the Internet -- that are not controlled by a single central authority, but emerged from the complex interaction of many economic agents, such as network operators, service providers, users, etc. These agents act in varying degrees of collaboration and competition. The talk will introduce some of the basic questions considered in this area, as well as some recent results on resource-allocation games arising in real-life applications.

Bio: Prof. Tamir Received her Ph.D. from the computer science department at the Technion, Israel, in 2001. Her research interests include design and analysis of algorithms, resource allocation problems, multimedia-on-demand systems, and algorithmic game theory. Prior to her Ph.D. studies, she was a member of the performance enhancement group of Intel in Haifa. After graduation, she spent two years as a lecturer and postdoctoral fellow at the University of Washington in Seattle. In 2004, she joined the school of Computer Science at The Interdisciplinary Center (IDC), Israel,  where she served as the CS school dean in 2012-2017.
