Abstract: Auctions designs relying on modern game theoretic foundations are increasingly being used by Regulatory Agencies for selling spectrum licenses. The contribution of game theory toward these auctions is perhaps the single largest, in value terms, application of game theory. I will provide a survey of the relevant auction theory and experience. I will also discuss the role of economic consultants in advising both the Regulator and firms bidding in these auctions.
