(LaTeX) Abstract:

Designing truthful mechanisms for scheduling on related machines is a very
important problem in single-parameter mechanism design. We consider the covering objective, that is we are
interested in maximizing the minimum completion time of a
machine. This problem falls into the class of problems where the
optimal allocation can be truthfully implemented. A major open issue for
this class is whether truthfulness affects the polynomial-time implementation.

We provide the first
constant factor approxi\-mation for deterministic truthful mechanisms.
In particular we come up with a approximation guarantee of $2+\eps$,
significantly improving on the previous upper bound of $\min(m,(2+\eps)s_m/s_1)$.
