Data on Mathematical Economics Described by Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University
2012 MAY 11 - (VerticalNews.com) -- According to the authors of a study from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, "I study a market where agents with unit demand jointly own heterogeneous goods."
"In this market, the existence of an efficient, incentive compatible, individually rational, and budget balanced mechanism depends on the shares of the agents. I characterize the set of shares for which having such a mechanism is possible," wrote M.B. Yenmez and colleagues, Carnegie Mellon University.
The researchers concluded: "This set includes the symmetric allocation and excludes the allocation in which every agent owns a separate good."
Yenmez and colleagues published their study in the Journal of Mathematical Economics (Dissolving multi-partnerships efficiently. Journal of Mathematical Economics, 2012;48(2):77-82).
