Generalized reduced-form auctions: A network-flow approach


Che, Yeon-Koo; Kim, Jinwoo; Mierendorff, Konrad (2013). Generalized reduced-form auctions: A network-flow approach. Working paper series / Department of Economics 31, University of Zurich.

Abstract

We develop a network-flow approach for characterizing interim-allocation rules that can be implemented by ex post allocations. Our method can be used to characterize feasible interim allocations in general multi-unit auctions where agents face capacity constraints, both ceilings and floors. Applications include a variety of settings of practical interest, ranging from individual and group-specific capacity constraints, set-aside sale, partnership dissolution, and government license reallocation.
