An asynchronous distributed and scalable generalized Nash equilibrium seeking algorithm for strongly monotone games

More Info


In this paper, we present three distributed algorithms to solve a class of Generalized Nash Equilibrium (GNE) seeking problems in strongly monotone games. The first one (SD-GENO) is based on synchronous updates of the agents, while the second and the third (AD-GEED and AD-GENO) represent asynchronous solutions that are robust to communication delays. AD-GENO can be seen as a refinement of AD-GEED, since it only requires node auxiliary variables, enhancing the scalability of the algorithm. Our main contribution is to prove convergence to a v-GNE variational-GNE (vGNE) of the game via an operator-theoretic approach. Finally, we apply the algorithms to network Cournot games and show how different activation sequences and delays affect convergence. We also compare the proposed algorithms to a state-of-the-art algorithm solving a similar problem, and observe that AD-GENO outperforms it.
