Nonparametric Estimation of Asymmetric First Price Auctions: A Simplified Approach

Zhang, Bin; Guler, Kemal


Keyword(s): affiliated private values; first price auctions; asymmetric auctions; structural econometrics; nonparametric estimation

Abstract: We present an approach to non-parametric estimation of pseudo-values in asymmetric affiliated private values (APV) models for first-price auctions that eliminates the 'curse of dimensionality.' We show that pseudo- values can be estimated by using two-dimensional functions of bids for APV models regardless of the form asymmetry.
