Matching with Multiple Applications: The Limiting Case

Author

Abstract

We give an expression for the expected number of matches between unemployed workers and vacancies when each worker makes a = 2 applications, correcting Albrecht, Gautier, and Vroman (2003). We also show that the limiting matching probability given in our earlier note is correct for any finite a.
