Our team designs and analyzes a procedure (rule) for optimally allocating resources or services in multi-agent systems where strategic agents have conflicts of interests. Traditionally, a resource allocation problem is considered as a combinatorial optimization problem, but it is assumed that there is only a single agent making the decision. Thus, the existence of multiple strategic agents, who may tell lies to unfairly increase their own profit, is not taken into account. Therefore, from the perspective of game theory in microeconomics, we pursue the way of desirable rules that agents have incentives to act honestly.
