Main Title: Congestion Games with Variable Demands
Author(s): Harks, Tobias
Klimm, Max
Type: Research Paper
Abstract: We initiate the study of congestion games with variable demands where the (variable) demand has to be assigned to exactly one subset of resources. Each player's incentive to use higher demands is stimulated by a non-decreasing and concave utility function. The payoff for a player is defined as the difference between the utility of the demand and the associated congestion cost on the used resources. Although this basic class of non-cooperative games captures many elements of real-world applications, it has not been studied, to our knowledge, in the past.
