Optimal reservation price Trade-off between gain from more aggressive bidding against loss from no sale. Optimal (i.e. price-maximising) reservation price in a sealed-bid first-price auction is given by . The Dutch and first-price, sealed-bid auctions are strategically equivalent; that is, the optimal bids by participants are identical for both types of auctions. Perfect Information Each participant knows for certain what the item is worth, and furthermore, all the players know the valuations of other players in an auction.

Engelbrecht-Wiggans [] shows that if the number of bidders is fixed, there exists an optimal reserve price for single-item auctions. price, at a price that equals the higher of the second highest value and the reserve. The optimal mechanism can be implemented by a variety of simple selling procedures, by the first- or second-price sealed bid auctions, English or Dutch auctions with appropriately chosen reserve price.

Specifically, we examine how varying the reservation price or screening level affects the bid-taker's expected revenue though its effect on the number of bidders.

Downloadable. The theory of auction design examines how various factors affect the outcome of an auction. Most of the existing literature focuses on how varying the amount of information available to each bidder affects the bid-taker's expected revenue when all other factors remain constant.

This paper studies how the bid-taker's expected revenue varies with changes in the auction. The authors relax the IPV assumption; characterize optimal reservation prices in a richer class of auctions; and show that, when information is correlated, the seller's optimal reservation price.
