  Equilibrium bidding in both auctions deviates from the standard Symmetric Independent Private Value auction model due to opportunity costs of bidding created by possibly employed capacity. For this sequential auction model with non-identical objects Cited by: 8. significant price decline that has been often observed over the course of a sequential auction of identical objects (Ashenfelter, ). At first, this result has been considered an anomaly, since in sequential English auctions of identical objects with risk .

Sequential auctions with bids announced between sales seem preferable because the bids may convey information about the value of objects to be sold later. The auction literature shows that this information effect increases the seller's expected by: That last remaining bidder wins the object at the final price. An ascending-bid auction can be run.. by having seller announce prices, or by having bidders call out prices themselves, or by having bids submitted electronically with the best current bid posted.

A sequential auction is an auction in which several items are sold, one after the other, to the same group of potential buyers. In a sequential first-price auction (SAFP), each individual item is sold using a first price auction, while in a sequential second-price auction (SASP), each individual item is sold using a second price auction. In such auctions, future opportunities affect strategic considerations of the players. The goal of this paper is to develop a quantitative understanding of outcomes of such sequential auctions. In earlier work (Paes Leme et al. ) we initiated the study of the price of anarchy in sequential auctions.

Sequential auctions of non-identical objects. By Richard Engelbrecht-Wiggans. Abstract. Includes bibliographical references (p. 12) Publisher: [Urbana, Ill.]: College of Commerce and Business Administration, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Year: OAI identifier Author: Richard Engelbrecht-Wiggans.

In this paper we will present one special form of multi-unit auction, when objects are sold one by one in sequential auctions1.

In contrast to multi-unit auctions where all objects are sold at the same time, sequential auctions last longer and bidders can obtain information concerning the valuations of. identical and non-identical objects (ours); sequential auctions (MM) vs. three auction types (ours) • MM’s focus is on identical objects which makes that study an extreme snapshot and leads to a more restrictive rationale than ours.

A first round winner in MM is their de facto second. Sequential auctions are a popular institution for selling multiple objects. In the canonical independent private values model of homogeneous objects, equilibrium price sequence is a Author: Akitoshi Muramoto, Ryuji Sano.

Typically, an individual item is allocated to a bidder at each round by means of either a sealed bid –rst-price or an open English auction. In this paper we propose an alternative model of sequential auctions following the work of Engelbrecht-Wiggans ().

He examines an independent private values model where objects are sold sequentially through second-price auctions. Objects are stochastically equivalent, that is, at each round bidders draw their valuations for that by: sequential auctions of identical assets.

Rare book auctions are a context in which jkrther progress on sequential auctions is likely. * The author is grateful to Professor John Creedy, and to Mrs Jill Burdon for her advice about interpreting the book auction records. Economic theory is inconclusive but suggests prices in sequential auctions of identical objects should follow flat or rising paths.

The empirical literature is in several ways unsatisfactory, but points most commonly to falling price paths. Data from rare book auctions promise to overcome some of the problems in the empirical literature. Fourth, sequential auctions are mostly preferred by the seller when the objects are likely to be of low value and the precision of the informed bidder’s signal is low.

Documents Authors. Sequential auctions for objects with common and private values. This paper analyzes sequential auctions for private value objects using second-price sealed-bid rules. Now, the equilibrium bids for such auctions depend on the information uncertainty of the bidders.

Specifically, there are three key auction parameters that the bidders could be uncertain about: the valuations of the objects for sale, the number of objects for sale, and the number of Cited by: 3. in simultaneous and sequential –rst-price auctions of non-identical objects when bidders have multi-unit demands.

The analysis provides the following four main results. To date, the largest part of literature on multi-unit auctions has assumed that there are k homogeneous objects being auctioned, where each bidder wishes to win exactly one or all of k units.

These modeling assumptions have made the examination of ordering in sequential auctions by: In this paper we suggest a model of sequential auctions with endogenous participation where each bidder conjectures about the number of participants at each round.

Then, after learning his value, each bidder decides whether or not to participate in the by: objects and Pesando and Shum () in which, when near contemporaneous sales of the same object by different auction houses are defined as a single sequential auction, prices increase as well.
