Acyclicity and singleton cores in matching markets

Author

  • Triossi, Matteo

Abstract

The absence of simultaneous cycles is a sufficient condition for the existence of singleton cores. Acyclicity in the preferences of either side of the market is a minimal condition that guarantees the existence of singleton cores.
