Math 103, Section 11, Tuesday, February 22, 2011 Chapter 3 Handout 1 The Mathematics of Sharing Assignment Chapter 3A Please do Exercises 12,18,30, and 32. Homework will be submitted to Sakai. Homework to be discussed in class on Friday February 25. Exercise 7,9, and 11 This is an adorable divider-chooser video on youtube! Please watch it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdYFVN35h5w . Chapter 3 3.1 Fair-Division Games: The Mathematics of Sharing Basic elements of a fair-division game: 1. The goods or booty Examples: cake, pizza, jewelry, art, land, water rights, drilling rights, chores 2. The players Examples: individuals, clubs, political parties, states, nations 3 The value systems Examples: Each player can look at the set S or any part of the set S and assign to it a value. Either in absolute terms (to me, that’s worth \$3.00) or in relative terms (to me, that piece is worth 25% of the total value of S). Basic Assumptions: 1. Rationality-each player wants to maximize his or her share of the booty S. Player uses reason and no psychology, mind games, etc. 2. Cooperation. Players accept the rules of the game. No judges or referees. 3. Privacy. Players have no useful information on the other players’ value systems and thus of what kinds of moves they are going to make in the game.

4. Symmetry. Players have equal rights in sharing the set S. A consequence of this assumption is that, at a minimum, each player is entitled to a proportional share of S. for 2 players, each is entitled to at least one-half of S for 3 players, each is entitled to at least one-third of S. Fair Shares and Fair-Division Methods Suppose that s denotes a share of the booty S and that P is one of the players in a fair-division game with N players. We will say that s is a fair share to player P if s is worth at least 1/N th of the total value of S in the opinion of P.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
