note = {This thesis consists of four essays that belong to the literature on the theory of auctions and the theory of contests. Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 are devoted to the research on auctions and study the role of symmetry in auction design. In Chapter 1, I show how the designer can favor one of the bidders by choosing auction rules even if the chosen auction has to be symmetric. In Chapter 2, the symmetric revenue-maximizing auction is completely characterized. Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 contribute to the contest theory. In Chapter 3, the role of head starts in search contests is investigated. Chapter 4 finds optimal prize structures of elimination contests for a general form of the designer's objective.},
