Fair Division in the Real World
September 25, 2006
Bailey Hall 312
refreshments will be served
Can mathematics play any role in issues of fairness arising from divorces, inheritances, or international dispute? In suggesting that it can, we will focus on a particular fair-division scheme -- Adjusted Winner -- and give two applications of its use, one in a (hypothetical) divorce and one in a (hypothetical) resolution of the Egyptian-Israeli dispute leading to the Camp David accords of 1978. The patent issued for the Adjusted Winner scheme was the first in the field of conflict resolution. The material in this talk is independent of what we did in last week's seminar.
