Results and Impact I presented this paper at a seminar called 'Optimization and Incentives', at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, University of Cambridge. There were about 30 people in the audience, mostly post-graduate students. The idea of the seminar is to develop interest in how mathematics can be used to address questions of optimization, in particular, bringing in ideas from economics, so that the participants' incentives are aligned.
