These Transactions publish research in computer-based methods of computational collective intelligence (CCI) and their applications in a wide range of fields such as the Semantic Web, social networks and multiagent systems. TCCI strives to cover new methodological, theoretical and practical aspects of CCI understood as the form of intelligence that emerges from the collaboration and competition of many individuals (artificial and/or natural). The application of multiple computational intelligence technologies such as fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, neural systems, consensus theory, etc., aims to support human and other collective intelligence and to create new forms of CCI in natural and/or artificial systems. This seventh issue contains a collection of ten carefully selected and thorougly revised contributions.

The alternating double auction market institution is presented as a discrete time version of the open outcry market. The game in extensive form is analyzed in an almost perfect information setting, using the concept of subgame perfectness. By applying two new equilibrium selection criteria, a general existence result is obtained for "impatience equilibria" of the game. All such equilibria are shown to have unique properties concerning the traded quantities and prices. The most important results are that the equilibrium prices are independent of the number of traders and are always very close to - if not inside - the range of competitive prices. The latter can be evaluated as game theoretic support for the convergence of prices to the competitive price. The process of price formation is traced by applying the learning direction theory and introducing the "anchor price hypothesis".

Much like its commissioner Mr Lalit Modi, IPL from the very beginning has always been mired in controversies of all imaginable kinds. From Vijay Mallyas sacking of the team coach Charu Sharma for the teams poor performance in season one to the grand auction of international players for season two in Fort Aguda Beach Resort in Goa, Modi has been able to keep the interest alive by successfully marrying money with sports. This is a new kind of cricket, where players are auctioned and teams and players are owned by frnanchise owners. But this is also the cricket where players from U-19 get a chance to play with Sachin Tendulkar or Shane Warne. IPL: An Inside Story takes a look at almost all the aspects of IPL from who actually first thought of such a tournament to the process of choosing the franchise owners, and from the socio-economic impact of the IPL on Indian society to the politics of shifting the venue of season two to South Africa.

Tod Volpe had more than an excellent eye for art. His gift of the gab took him from a start-up gallery in New York's Soho into the houses, lives and wallets of stars including Jack Nicholson, Barbra Streisand, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Andy Warhol and Madonna. bra Appearing to live the American Dream, his high-maintenance, wheeler-dealer lifestyle became a dark path to self-destruction. At the height of his success, Volpe crashed and burned in a widely publi-cised case of art fraud. Represented by top attorneys Nathan and Alan Dershowitz (of Klaus Von Bulow trial fame), his story made international headlines and threatened to blow the lid off the secret world of art dealing.With behind-the-scenes coverage, the book gives an insight into how auctions and dealers manoeuvre art around the globe. Money laundering, trading art with drug dealers, avoiding tax, and making false insurance claims are only a taste of what is revealed as the seedier side of the art world is laid bare. Framed is a fascinatingblow-by-blow account of how the life of one man who 'had it all' spiralled out of control. Volpe learned the hard way that when you lose sight of who you really are nothing in the world.

Spectrum Auctions and Competition in Telecommunications

Leading experts in industrial organization and auction theory examine the recent European telecommunication license auction experience. In 2000 and 2001, several European countries carried out auctions for third generation technologies or universal mobile telephone services (UMTS) communication licenses. These "spectrum auctions" inaugurated yet another era in an industry that has already been transformed by a combination of staggering technological innovation and substantial regulatory change. Because of their spectacular but often puzzling outcomes, these spectrum auctions attracted enormous attention and invited new research on the interplay of auctions, industry dynamics, and regulation. This book collects essays on this topic by leading analysts of telecommunications and the European auction experience, all but one presented at a November 2001 CESifo conference; comments and responses are included as well, to preserve some of the controversy and atmosphere of give-and-take at the conference.The essays show the interconnectedness of two important and productive areas of modern economics, auction theory and industrial organization. Because spectrum auctions are embedded in a dynamic interaction of consumers, firms, legislation, and regulation, a multidimensional approach yields important insights. The first essays discuss strategies of stimulating new competition and the complex interplay of the political process, regulation, and competition. The later essays focus on specific spectrum auctions. Combining the empirical data these auctions provide with recent advances in microeconomic theory, they examine questions of auction design and efficiency and convincingly explain the enormous variation of revenues in different auctions.
