AGT Primer

I got to hear Tim Roughgarden speak about recent results, in particular, his recent STOC and SAGT papers. He gave a nice technical description of Meyerson's optimal auctions result and argued how the probabilistic utility model there is no inherent limitation as his results show for classical TCS type prior-free optimal mechanisms. Fantastic stuff, and Tim is a powerful speaker. He has a STOC/FOCS type primer on Algorithmic Game Theory that is now online. Enjoy!
