Abstract

This report exlpores how well-known techniques from micro-economics can be used to interpret and solve aspects of resource allocation problems in distributed systems. The principle features of the relevant economic theory are described before the report goes on to investigate how the theory can be used to solve an instance of the load balancing problem in a distributed system.
