Forges, Haeringer and Iehle on matching

Appariement: des modeles de Lloyd Shapley a la conception de march es d'Alvin Roth.

Francoise Forges ,  Guillaume Haeringer,, Vincent Iehle

Here's the English summary:

Matching: from Lloyd Shapley's models to Alvin Roth's market design.

Alvin Roth and Lloyd Shapley have received in 2012 the Sveriges Riksbank prize in economic sciences in memory of Alfred Nobel, for their work on the centralized organization of some economic markets, which rely on the matching of agents of two different types (students and schools, for instance). Shapley is the co-author, with David Gale, of the seminal paper of the area, which proposes an algorithm to reach a stable matching. Roth directed the reform of the entry level labor market for American physicians (the National Resident Matching Program) and the design of a market for kidney transplants. After having surveyed these contributions, we also give an account of Shapley's leading role in game theory.
