    • Essays on implementability and monotonicity 

      Pasin, Pelin (Bilkent University, 2009)
      In this thesis we study the implementation problem with regard to the relation between monotonicity and implementability. Recent work in the field has shown that the implementability of a social choice rule strongly ...
    • Explorations on monotonicity in social choice theory 

      Doğan, Battal (Bilkent University, 2007)
      Due to Maskin (1977), Maskin-monotonicity is known to be a necessary condition for Nash-implementability. Once one classifies social choice rules as the ones which are Maskin-monotonic and those which are not, a ...
    • Implementation via rights structures 

      Koray, S.; Yildiz, K. (Academic Press, 2018)
      Implementation of socially desirable alternatives can be thought of as a way to design power distribution in a society such that the equilibrium outcomes coincide with the alternatives chosen at each preference profile. ...
    • Majority voting rule and oligarchic social choice rules 

      Pasin, Pelin (Bilkent University, 2001)
      In the first part of this study majority voting rule for two alternatives and continuum agents is characterized. As in the finite agent case, symmetry among agents, neutrality between alternatives and positive responsiveness ...
    • Self-selective social choice functions verify arrow and gibbard-satterthwaite theorems 

      Koray, S. (Wiley-Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2000)
      This paper introduces a new notion of consistency for social choice functions, called self-selectivity, which requires that a social choice function employed by a society to make a choice from a given alternative set it ...
    • Some results on monotonicity 

      Dindar, Hayrullah (Bilkent University, 2010)
      In this thesis, we investigate several issues concerning social choice rules which satisfy different degrees of Maskin type monotonicities. Firstly, we introduce g −monotonicity and monotonicity region notions which ...
    • Two essays in social choice theory 

      Kaya, Ayça (Bilkent University, 2000)
      Solution concepts which implement only monotonic social choice rules are characterized in terms of a new notion of monotonicity pertaining to solution concepts. For any given class G of mechanisms, it turns out that a ...
