Optimal Deterministic Mechanisms for an Additive Buyer
EC, pp. 429-398, 2018.
We study revenue maximization by deterministic mechanisms for the simplest case for which Myerson's characterization does not hold: a single seller selling two items, with independently distributed values, to a single additive buyer. We prove that optimal mechanisms are submodular and hence monotone. Furthermore, we show that in the IID c...More
