about this book

Following the successful PCS Auction conducted by the US Federal Communications Commission in 1994, auctions have replaced traditional ways of allocating valuable radio spectrum, a key resource for any mobile telecommunications operator. Spectrum auctions have raised billions of dollars worldwide and have become a role model for market-based approaches in the public and private sectors. The design of spectrum auctions is a central application of game theory and auction theory due to its importance in industry and the theoretical challenges it presents. Several auction formats have been developed with different properties addressing fundamental questions about efficiently selling multiple objects to a group of buyers. This comprehensive handbook features classic papers and new contributions by international experts on all aspects of spectrum auction design, including pros and cons of different auctions and lessons learned from theory, experiments, and the field, providing a valuable resource for regulators, telecommunications professionals, consultants, and researchers.

It's a comprehensive analysis of designs, implementation, experimental testing, and bidding experience in auctions and similar markets for spectrum licenses. The authors achieved remarkable success in many auctions after the initial FCC auction began worldwide efforts to allocate licenses more efficiently via market mechanisms. The distinguished contributors report their solutions to difficult problems, the resulting performance, and remaining challenges.'
