Fair Division of Indivisible Goods (Rohit Vaish)

Abstract

Many real-life situations involve dividing a set of resources among agents in an impartial or equitable manner. Fair division is the formal study of such situations, accounting for the fact that different agents might have different preferences over the goods that need to be divided. In this talk, we will discuss the fair division of discrete (or indivisible) goods, and present some recent results showing that the seemingly incompatible notions of fairness and economic efficiency can be achieved simultaneously.

Based on joint works with Siddharth Barman and Sanath Kumar Krishnamurthy, and with Rupert Freeman, Sujoy Sikdar, and Lirong Xia.
