Rent-sharing Matching Mechanism Visualization

Filed under: Portfolio — admin @ 12:56 pm

If in an effort to avoid arguments and hurt-feelings, you and your roommates want to find the most efficient way to divide rent and decide who gets which room… fret none. “Room assignment-rent division: A market approach” by Abdulkadiroglu, Sönmez, and Ünver details a simple, clever and elegant mechanism for resolving this dilemma. I’ve put together a bit of a visualization for those (like me) whom need a little aesthetic assistance in understanding how the mechanism works.

See it in action!
