- 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.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
