By Ron Lavi

This e-book constitutes the refereed complaints of the seventh overseas Symposium on Algorithmic online game thought, SAGT 2014, held in Haifa, Israel, in October 2014. The 24 complete papers and five brief papers offered have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from sixty five submissions. They hide quite a few vital points of algorithmic online game thought, reminiscent of matching idea, video game dynamics, video games of coordination, networks and social selection, markets and auctions, fee of anarchy, computational facets of video games, mechanism layout and auctions.

The goal is to partition (or pack) the items into a minimum number of subsets or blocks. Each such block is packed into a unit capacity bin, and the load of a bin is defined to be the total size of items packed into it (and can never exceed 1). Here, we study bin packing from the point of view of algorithmic game theory. We now define the game theoretical concepts required for the definition of the bin packing game. In a strategic game, there is a finite set of players, and a finite and non-empty set of strategies (or actions) that players can perform.

This implicit definition entails a significant amount of inter-dependence between the Rc sets. In particular it now becomes more difficult to establish the following property of the sets Rc : Stable Marriage with General Preferences 35 for every acceptable pair (bj , ci ) of the instance I we have (b, bj ) ∈ Rci if and only if b is a man that ci prefers at least as much as bj in I. This property was crucial for establishing a correspondence between the pairs that are blocking in I and those that are blocking in J .

For k = 1, . . , i − 1, the k-th free item is moved from its bin, to the bins B1 , B2 , . , Bi−k , in this order. Bi−k will now contain i − k + 1 items and will not be used again in this process. After all these steps, Bη (for 1 ≤ η ≤ i − 1) will contain η + 1 items. The i-th free item remains packed in its own bin, so as a result, for any 1 ≤ η ≤ i there is a bin with η items. The number of additional steps for the free items (the steps that are applied after the bins Bη are created using the induction hypothesis) is i−1 (i − k) = i(i − 1)/2 , k=1 The Convergence Time for Selfish Bin Packing 41 as the number of steps for the kth free item is i − k.
