Public school choice—the initiative for broadening families' access to schools beyond their residence area—has broad public support and has been increasingly adopted across the US and abroad. Yet, how to operationalize school choice, i.e., what procedure should be used to assign students to schools, remains hotly debated. An important debate centers around(More)
This paper considers the matching problem with regional quotas, in particular, regional minimum quotas. Although such quotas are relevant in many real-world settings, there is a lack of strategy-proof mechanisms that consider regional minimum quotas. We first show that without any restrictions on the region structure, finding a feasible matching that(More)
answered our questions about medical residency in Japan and introduced us to the relevant medical literature. We are grateful to officials at the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare and the Japan Residency Matching Program for discussion. Abstract. Many real matching markets are subject to distributional constraints. These constraints often take the form(More)
We present a method based on the inverse boundary element method (IBEM) for the in-situ estimation of normal acoustic impedances of the surfaces in a room. As input to the inverse process, this technique uses the geometry of the interior space, the position and strength of the sound source, and a set of sound pressures measured at random positions in the(More)
Truthful revelation of preferences has emerged as a desideratum in the design of school choice programs. Gale-Shapley's deferred acceptance mechanism is strategy-proof for students but limits their ability to communicate their preference intensities. This results in ex-ante inefficiency when ties at school preferences are broken randomly. We propose a(More)
We propose two methods based on the inverse boundary element method (IBEM) for the estimation of acoustic impedances of the interior surfaces of a room. The algorithms take as input the geometrical model of the space, a set of sound field pressures measured at random points and the vibration strength of the sound source. A first approach is a constrained(More)
