The bankruptcy problem is concerned with how to divide the net worth of the bankrupt ®rm among its creditors. In this paper, we investigate the logical relations between various axioms in the context… (More)

A quasi-linear social choice problem is concerned with choosing one among a ®nite set of public projects and determining side payments among agents to cover the cost of the project, assuming each… (More)

We explore the implications of no-envy (Foley 1967) in the context of queueing problems. We identify an easy way of checking whether a rule satisfies efficiency and no-envy. The existence of such a… (More)

We study the behavior of rules for the adjudication of conflicting claims when there are a large number of claimants with small claims. We model such situations by replicating some basic problem. We… (More)

We analyze bargaining situations in which the feasible set is known but the disagreement point is uncertain. By requiring that all agents, generally, be affected by the uncertainty in the same way,… (More)

We investigate the implications of two axioms specifying how a value should respond to changes in the set of players for TU games. Population solidarity requires that the arrival of new players… (More)

This paper investigates implications of introducing immunosuppressants (or suppressants) in kidney exchange problems. We begin with the standard kidney exchange model without suppressants and define… (More)

We study the behavior of the random arrival rule in claims problems with a large number of claimants. We assume that the amount to divide is not too “small” compared with total claims, and each claim… (More)

We explore the implications of consistency in sequencing problems. We rst identify all rules satisfying Pareto indi erence, individual rationality, and consistency. Next, we ask whether there is a… (More)
