Preliminary scope of work
Auctions are a worldwide used tool for the distribution of goods. The aim of this thesis is to decribe how specific determinants affect bidding behavior and the final prices. The determinants studied in this thesis are divided in two major groups. The first one contains demand factors such as the number of bids or the way of bidding. The second group of interest are the auction rules. The thesis will exploit data from major online auctions.

Content:

1. Introduction
2. Survey of current literature
3. Empirical analysis of data
4. Interpretation of results
5. Conclusion
