Incentive-Compatibility, Individual-Rationality and Fairness for Quality of Service Claims
Keyword(s): QoS; services; trust; pricing

We extend  by providing theorems demonstrating the existence of incentive-compatible mechanisms for a broad class of expected costs to the user, and also introduce a notion of fairness with which to constrain the space of acceptable mechanisms.
