Uniqueness of Equilibrium in Two-sided Matching

Author

  • Simon Clark

Abstract

This paper analyses a sufficient condition for uniqueness of equilibrium in two-sided matching with non-transferable utility. The condition is easy to interpret, being based on the notion that a person's characteristics both form the basis of their attraction to the opposite sex, and determine their own sexual preferences.
