Show Summary Details


This chapter presents the notion of affiliation and analyses its implications for equilibrium bidding functions and revenue. The notion of affiliation in a general multivariate context, and how theorems are essential to understanding how affiliation works are discussed. Equilibrium behaviour is characterized in second-, and first-price, and English button auctions. The expected revenue comparisons for these three auction formats and the effects of risk aversion are examined.

Keywords: affiliation; equilibrium bidding; revenues; auctions; risk aversion
