Title: Mechanism Design in Single Dimensional Type Spaces
Abstract: We consider a class of mechanism design problems in private value environment where the type of an agent is a single number. The preference over transfers is quasi-linear for every agent. We give a complete characterization of dominant strategy incentive compatible mechanisms for these problems. Further, by imposing a suitable version of anonymity and non-bossiness along with dominant strategy incentive compatibility, we characterize the Groves mechanisms.
