« A mechanism is called incentive-compatible (IC) if every participant can achieve the best outcome to him/herself just by acting according to his/her true preferences. »

The whole thesis is about 27 pages and the proof itself is 7/8 pages (double spaced) and use basic linear algebra. Even though it extends a previous result from Von Neumann (where N=2) significantly.
