Lecture videos from weeks 5-7 of my AGT course have been posted. Week 5 covers mechanism design with budgets and without money, with a case study on kidney exchange. Week 6 is all about selfish routing and the price of anarchy, with a case study on network overprovisioning. Week 7 goes beyond Nash equilibria and covers some aspects of the theory of smooth games. I fell behind on lecture notes, which are currently available through week 5, but am now catching up.
Looking ahead, in weeks 8-10 we’ll conclude this quarter’s course by talking about learning dynamics (best-response and no-regret) and the complexity of equilibria.
