Mechanism Design and Approximation
by Jason D. Hartline
Number of pages: 349
The text presents the classical theory of economic mechanism design and introduces a new theory of approximation for mechanism design. A central theme will be the tradeoff between optimality and other desirable properties such as simplicity, robustness, computational tractability, and practicality.

The book provides a new, non-extensive entropy econometrics approach to the economic modelling of ill-behaved inverse problems. Particular attention is paid to national account-based general equilibrium models known for their relative complexity.
