Summer School on Matching Problems, Markets and Mechanisms - first summer school of the COST Action on Computational Social Choice
Matching market design is an interdisciplinary research area of Economics, Game Theory, and Computer Science. Based on the particular characteristics of the matching markets at hand, a first task is to determine the desirable properties that a satisfactory algorithm should satisfy. These considerations may include criteria of efficiency, fairness, and non-manipulability and the importance and formulation of each criterion might differ depending on the socio-economic and cultural context. A second task is to establish the existence of a (class of) algorithm(s) that satisfy the requirements (i.e., prove the compatibility of the requirements), and determine their computational complexity. Additional techniques to design a matching algorithm for specific markets are experiments and simulations.
