Registered author(s):

    We consider the problem of allocating several units of an indivisible object among the agents with single-peaked and risk-averse utility functions. We introduce equal probability for the best, and show that the randomized uniform rule is the only randomized rule satisfying strategy-proofness, Pareto optimality, and equal probability for the best. This is an alternative characterization of the result of Ehlers and Klaus (2004).
