A Note on Stability in One-to-One, Multi-period Matching Markets

Abstract

We introduce a new stability concept for multi-period matching markets. Robust prescient stability asserts that agents exhibit foresight concerning how a market can develop in the future, but they retain ambiguity concerning how the market will develop. We show that a robustly presciently stable matching exists for any configuration of agents' preferences.
