    • Design and analysis of mechanisms for decentralized joint replenishment 

      Güler, K.; Körpeoğlu, E.; Şen, A. (Elsevier B.V., 2017)
      We consider jointly replenishing multiple firms that operate under an EOQ like environment in a decentralized, non-cooperative setting. Each firm's demand rate and inventory holding cost rate are private information. We ...
    • Essays on bilateral trade with discrete types 

      Mohammadinezhad, Kamyar Kargar (Bilkent University, 2019-11)
      Bilateral trade is probably the most common market interaction problem and can be considered as the simplest form of two sided markets where a seller and a buyer bargain over an indivisible object subject to incomplete ...
    • Essays on non-cooperative inventory games 

      Körpeoğlu, Evren (Bilkent University, 2012)
      In this thesis we study different non–cooperative inventory games. In particular, we focus on joint replenishment games and newsvendor duopoly under asymmetric information. Chapter 1 contains introduction and motivation ...
    • Joint design and fabrication for multi-material soft/hybrid robots 

      Aygül, Cern; Kwiczak-Yiğitbaşı, Joanna; Baytekin, Bilge; Özcan, Onur (IEEE, 2019-04)
      The premises of safer interactions with surroundings and the higher adaptability to its environment make soft robotics a very interesting research field. Some robots try to achieve these feats using soft materials in their ...
    • MinIAQ-II: a miniature foldable quadruped with an improved leg mechanism 

      Askari, Mohammad; Karakadıoǧlu, Cem; Ayhan, Furkan; Özcan, Onur (IEEE, 2018)
      Origami has long been renowned as a simple yet creative form of art and its folding techniques have recently inspired advances in design and fabrication of miniature robots. In this work, we present the design and fabrication ...
    • Non-linear pricing by convex duality 

      Pınar, M. Ç. (Elsevier, 2015)
      We consider the pricing problem of a risk-neutral monopolist who produces (at a cost) and offers an infinitely divisible good to a single potential buyer that can be of a finite number of (single dimensional) types. The ...
    • Robust bilateral trade with discrete types 

      Kargar, K.; Bayrak, H. I.; Pinar, M. Ç. (Springer Verlag, 2018)
      Bilateral trade problem is the most common market interaction in which a seller and a buyer bargain over an indivisible object, and the valuation of each agent about the object is private information. We investigate the ...
    • Robust screening under ambiguity 

      Pınar, M. Ç.; Kızılkale, C. (Springer, 2017)
      We consider the problem of screening where a seller puts up for sale an indivisible good, and a buyer with a valuation unknown to the seller wishes to acquire the good. We assume that the buyer valuations are represented ...
    • Robust trading mechanisms over 0/1 polytopes 

      Pınar, M. Ç. (Springer New York LLC, 2018)
      The problem of designing a trade mechanism (for an indivisible good) between a seller and a buyer is studied in the setting of discrete valuations of both parties using tools of finite-dimensional optimization. A robust ...
