| Computing Equilibria: A Computational Complexity Perspective |
Tim Roughgarden
https://eccc.weizmann.ac.il/report/2015/153Computational complexity is the subfield of computer science that rigorously studies the intrinsic difficulty of computational problems. This survey explains how complexity theory defines “hard problems”; applies these concepts to several equilibrium computation problems; and discusses implications for computation, games, and behavior. We assume minimal prior background in computer science.
