An algorithm for identifying fair and optimal allocations

Andersson, Tommy LU (2007) In Economics Letters 96(3). p.337-342
Abstract
The concept of a fair and optimal allocation was recently introduced by Sun and Yang [Sun, N., Yang, Z., 2003. A general strategy proof fair allocation mechanism. Economics Letters 81, 73-79]. This note states some basic properties of fair and optimal allocations and provides a simple algorithm for identifying them. (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All fights reserved.
