Sharing the cost of multicast transmissions in wireless networks

Joint work with

Paolo Penna

University of Salerno, WP2

- Power(i)= d(i,j)α = range(i) α, α>1 (empty space α = 2)
- A message sent by station i to j can be also received by every station in transmission range of i

- A complete directed weighted communication graph G=(S,E,w)
- w(i,j) = cost of link (i,j)
- w(1,4) = d(1,4)2.1
- w(1,2) = d(1,2)5
- w(2,4) = ∞
- w(4,2) = d(4,2)2.1

- A source node s
- vi = private valuation of agent i

- Design a mechanism M=(A,P)
- Each agent declares bi
- Algorithm A selects, based on (b1, …, bn),
- a set of receivers
- a subset of connection T E

- Agent i must pay Pi(b1, …, bi-1, bi, bi+1 ..., bn)

- Utility of the agent
ui(bi)=

- Goal of agent i: maximize ui(bi)

- No positive transfer (NPT)
- Payments are nonnegative: Pi 0

- Voluntary Participation (VP)
- User i is charged less then his reported valuation bi (i.e. bi≥ Pi)

- Consumer Sovereignty (CS)
- Each user can receive the transmission if he is willing to pay a high price.

- Strategyproof (truthful) mechanism
- Telling the true vi is a dominant strategy for any agent

- Group-strategyproof mechanism
- No coalition of agents has an incentive to jointly misreport their true viStronger form of Incentive Compatibility.

- Budget Balance (BB)
- Pi = COST(T) (where T is the solution set)

- Efficiency (NW)
- the mechanism should maximize the
NET WORTH(T) := WORTH(T)-COST(T)

whereWORTH(T):= iT vj

- the mechanism should maximize the

Mutually exclusive!!

Efficiency No Group strategy-proof

Wireless broadcast

- 1d: COSTopt in polynomial time [Clementi et al, to appear]
- 2d: NP-hard, MST is an O(1)-apx [Clementi et al, ‘01]
- On graphs: (log n)-apx [Guha et al ‘96, Caragiannis et al, ‘02]
- Many others…
Wired cost sharing (selfish receivers)

- Distributed polytime truthful, efficient, NPT, VP, and CS mechanism for trees (no BB) [Feigenbaum et al, ‘99]
- Budget balance, NPT, VP, CS and group strategy-proof mechanism (no efficiency) [Jain et al, ‘00]
- No α-efficiency and β-BB for each α, β > 1 [Feigenbaum et al, ‘02]
- polytime algorithm no R-efficiency, for each R > 1 [Feigenbaum et al, ‘99]

G is a tree

- NWopt in polytime distributed algorithm
- Polytime mechanism M=(A,P) truthful, NPT, VP and CS
- Extensions to “metric trees” graphs
G is not a tree

- 2d: NP-hard to compute NWopt
- 1d: Polytime mechanism M=(A,P) truthful, NPT, VP, CS and efficient (i.e. NW is maximized)
- Precompute an universal multicast tree T G
- A polytime truthful, NPT, VP and CS mechanism
- O(1) or O(n)-efficiency, in some cases

- polytime algorithm no R-efficiency, for every R > 1

- Utilitarian problem:
- Xsol, measure(X)=i valuationi(X)

- Aoptcomputes Xsol maximizing measure(X)
- PVCG: M=(Aopt, PVCG) is truthful

Making our problem utilitarian:

- It is easy to see that the best solution has an optimal substructure
- It is simple to compute NWopt(s) in distributed bottom-up fashion
- O(n) time, 2 msgs per link

- A node k reached for free gets some credit

k

- k can use its credit to reach all of its children
- If there is a child l s.t. cl > credit(k) and NWopt(l)>0 then credit(k) is useless
- For each r Є ch(k): cl – cr > credit(k) – cr

- Paying a free edge is not a good solution (i.e. we have a smallest credit and a greater cost)

credit(r) = credit(k)-cr

credit(r)=cl-cr

credit(l)=0

- We have two contributions:
- the nodes whose ingoing edge is paid
- the nodes with credit c whose ingoing edge is free

NOTE: the optimum is NWopt(s,0)

- 2d Euclidean case:
- O(1)-APX multicast algorithm
- “Good” universal Euclidean multicast trees
- Truthful mechanism with O(1)-APX
- BB truthful mechanisms
