by Jason D. Hartline
Number of pages: 349
The text presents the classical theory of economic mechanism design and introduces a new theory of approximation for mechanism design. A central theme will be the tradeoff between optimality and other desirable properties such as simplicity, robustness, computational tractability, and practicality.
