Fair Division among Families

4 ottobre 2018 ore 12:00 - 13:00

Aula 207, Sede di Viale Romania, 32

Speaker: Erel Segal-Halevi, Ariel University

Abstract:   The theory of fair division is centered around individual agents, each of whom has individual preferences. But very often, resources have to be divided among groups of agents, such as families or states, whose members may have different preferences.  Can classic solutions to the fair division problem be adapted to this setting?
I will present results related to three types of fair division problem: multiple homogeneous resources, a single heterogeneous resource ("cake"), and multiple indivisible goods. I will show that it might be impossible to attain unanimous fairness, but may be possible to attain weaker forms of fairness based on democratic principles. Based on joint works with: Shmuel Nitzan, Warut Suksompong, and Sophie Bade.
