@article{Benedetto2020RandomAP, title={Random Assignment Problems on 2d Manifolds}, author={Dario Benedetto and Emanuele Caglioti and Sergio Caracciolo and Matteo D’Achille and Gabriele Sicuro and Andrea Sportiello}, journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics}, year={2020} }

We consider the assignment problem between two sets of $N$ random points on a smooth, two-dimensional manifold $\Omega$ of unit area. It is known that the average cost scales as $E_{\Omega}(N)\sim \frac{1}{2\pi}\ln N$ with a correction that is at most of order $\sqrt{\ln N\ln\ln N}$. In this paper, we show that, within the linearization approximation of the field-theoretical formulation of the problem, the first $\Omega$-dependent correction is on the constant term, and can be exactly computed…
