A Many-to-Many Rural Hospital Theorem
AbstractWe show that the full version of the so-called â€˜rural hospital theoremâ€™ generalizes to many-to-many matching problems where agents on both sides of the problem have substitutable and weakly separable preferences. We also show that when agentsâ€™ preferences satisfy substitutability, the domain of weakly separable preferences is maximal.
