Proof. Consider a standard auction form, A, and ﬁx a symmetric equilibrium β of A. Let m A (x) be the equilibrium expected payment in auction A by a bidder with value x. Suppose that β is such that m A (0) = 0. Consider a particular bidder—say, 1—and suppose other bidders are following the equilibrium strategy β. It is useful to abstract away from the details of the auction and consider the expected payoff of bidder 1 with value x and when he bids β (z) instead of the equilibrium bid β (x). Bidder 1 wins when his bid β (z) exceeds the highest competing bid β (Y1 ), or equivalently, when z > Y1 .
A. Use the revenue equivalence principle to derive a symmetric equilibrium bidding strategy in the war of attrition. b. Directly compute the symmetric equilibrium bidding strategy and the seller’s revenue when the bidders’ values are uniformly distributed on [0, 1]. 2.

Bidders’ valuations independently and identically distributed according to F.
The expected payment of an actual bidder with value x is mI (x) = G (x) β (x) 34 The Revenue Equivalence Principle where G(x) is as deﬁned earlier. 2 on page 15).
