Research Interests

Prof. Hartline's research introduces design and analysis methodologies
from computer science to understand and improve outcomes of economic
systems.  Optimal behavior and outcomes in complex environments are
complex and, therefore, should not be expected; instead, the theory of
approximation can show that simple and natural behaviors are
approximately optimal in complex environments.  This approach is
applied to auction theory and mechanism design in his graduate
textbook Mechanism Design and Approximation
(http://www.jasonhartline.com/MDnA/) which is under preparation.
