In this paper by Myerson on optimal single item auctions, the incentive compatibility condition is shown to be equivalent to the following simpler conditions on the auction - (i) the allocation probability being monotonic in bid (ii) the form of the payment rule.

Is there a similar characterization for multi-item auctions? Any reference regarding this would be helpful.
