Formally, in the ascending, or English, auction, the auctioneer gradually and continuously raises the price. e. he informs the auctioneer about how many units he would like to have at this price. The auctioneer then calculates total demand d( p) = d j ( p) (1) j and compares total demand with total supply s. Prices are increased until a price p∗ is reached where d( p∗ ) = s and each bidder i is then allocated di ( p∗ ) units at a price p∗ for each. Hence, all units sell at the same price.

As a simple example, consider the extreme case in which there are only two bidders, and bidder 1’s value is drawn from a uniform distribution between 0 and 1, while bidder 2’s value is drawn from a uniform distribution between 2 and 3.
