Symmetry—the values of all bidders are distributed according to same distribution function F. In this chapter we investigate how the revenue equivalence principle is affected when some of these assumptions are relaxed. We first explore the consequences of risk aversion on the part of bidders. We then study the effects of the assumption that bidders have sufficient financial resources to pay any price up to their values. We ask how the revenue equivalence principle holds up in an augmented model in which bidders are subject to budget constraints.

The explicit derivation of equilibrium strategies is due to Wolfstetter (2001). Auctions with an uncertain number of bidders have been considered by McAfee and McMillan (1987b), Matthews (1987), and Harstad, Kagel, and Levin (1990). The first two papers are particularly interested in how risk-averse bidders—considered in the next chapter—are affected by uncertainty regarding the number of competitors they face. Harstad, Kagel, and Levin (1990) derive equilibrium bidding strategies in different auctions under number uncertainty when bidders are risk neutral.

Notice that this is indeed the distribution function of the random variable X = min{X, W }. The probability that a type x , 1 will actually win the auction is just (F II (x ))N−1 ≡ G II (x ). 1, F II (x ) is the probability mass attached to the set of types lying below the lighter of the two right angles. 1 First- and second-price auctions with budget constraints.
