10/18 -- High School II: The Stable Marriage Problem, part 1 (Will Rosenbaum)

In this meeting we will explore the Stable Marriage Problem, a classical problem in economics initially studied by David Gale and UCLA professor Lloyd Shapley. The pioneering work of Gale and Shapley has inspired hundreds of research articles and several books. We will give a gentle introduction to the Stable Marriage Problem and its applications to college admissions.
