Project Description

The goal of this project is to allocate indivisible resources among agents in a “fair” way, motivated by problems such as a food bank creating prepackaged meals. The preferences of the agents are known, and the task is to split the items into bundles, such that every agent feels that any of the bundles is approximately fair. The research involves a theoretical understanding of what level of fairness can be guaranteed. It may be helpful to consult this tutorial on fair division: https://www.cs.toronto.edu/~nisarg/papers/Fair-Division-Tutorial.pdf

Additional Requirements
Preferred prior experience with analysis of algorithms and basic computational complexity
