Abstract:

We consider a setting where an auctioneer sells a single item to n potential agents with {\em interdependent values}. That is, each agent has her own private signal, and the valuation of each agent is a function of all n private signals. This captures settings such as valuations for oil fields, broadcast rights, art, etc. Read more about GAME THEORY AND MATHEMATICAL ECONOMICS RESEARCH SEMINAR:Michal Feldman, Tel Aviv University "Interdependent Values without Single-Crossing (Joint work with Alon Eden, Amos Fiat and Kira Goldner)"

# Special Talk : Justin Noel (University of Regensburg) - "Blue-shift and thick tensor ideals"

## Lecturer:

## Location:

Abstract:

I will discuss a recent generalization of Kuhn's Blue-shift theorem about Tate cohomology. Combining this result with work of Arone, Dwyer, and Lesh we resolve a conjecture of Balmer and Sanders and classify the thick tensor ideals of compact genuine $A$-spectra, where $A$ is a finite abelian group. This is joint work with Tobias Barthel, Markus Hausmann, Niko Naumann, Thomas Nikolaus, and Nathaniel Stapleton.
