In his very interesting book, Steve Williams provides an important and deep fundamental analysis of the structure and role of information in mechanisms. This is a must read for anyone interested in the foundations of mechanism design. - John Ledyard, California Institute of Technology
"This book explores in detail the use of calculus on manifolds to design decentralized mechanisms whose performance achieves specified economic objectives. The writing makes the uses of calculus on manifolds accessible to a reader familiar with standard multi-variable calculus. The book makes a fine a companion volume to Hurwicz and Reiter's Designing Economic Mechanisms. It should appeal to mathematicians as well as economists." -Stanley Reiter, Northwestern University
"This book is a valuable addition to economics and the mechanism design literature. Williams has nicely resurrected, clarified, illustrated, and described an important part of this area that has not been as fully exploited as it could and should." Donald Saari, University of California, Irvine
