Title: Analysis of Pricing Mechanisms in Resource Exchange Economy

Abstract: In many real-world settings where resources are shared, decentralized agents (e.g., individual competing firms) maximize their profits, and in so doing, choose to use a quantity of a resource. Motivated by a desire to understand the theoretical and structural underpinnings of what makes coordinating decentralized agents hard or easy, we study the effectiveness of different pricing mechanisms. In particular, we analyze nonlinear prices as well as prices obtained by Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition algorithm.
