Kidney exchange software

Itai Ashlagi has made available some of the  kidney exchange software (for both cycles and chains) that we used in two recent papers.

He writes: "To use
(i) one should have cplex and
(ii) please cite

The software either generates simulated patient/donor pairs as well as a compatibility matrix, or alternatively gets as an input such data. It finds an allocation that maximizes the number of transplants using cycles and chains each of a different bounded length. (Chains begin with non-directed donors.)"

Itai has also created a video abstract of the second paper above, about incentives for participation in large scale kidney exchange:
