Polymatroids and Auction Theory


Chair: John Birge


Abstract:
A polymatroid is a polytope associated with a submodular function. Its not often one can write a sentence that contains at least three words designed to scare small animals and little children, but there it is.

In this talk, I will describe how they arise and give examples of why they are useful in auction theory.
