Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

Finds all stable matchings (if one exists) in the stable roommates problem with incomplete lists using the Prosser (2014) constraint encoding based on either given or randomly generated preferences.

Usage

1
sri(prefs = NULL, nAgents = NULL, seed = NULL, p.range = NULL)

Arguments

prefs

valuation matrix of dimension nAgents x nAgents that gives column-players' ranking over other players in decreasing order of preference (i.e. most preferred first).

nAgents

integer that gives the number of players in the market.

seed

integer setting the state for random number generation.

p.range

range of two intergers p.range = c(p.min, p.max), where p.min < p.max. Produces incomplete preference lists with the length of each player's list randomly sampled from the range [p.min, p.max]. Note: interval is always too small because non-permissible matches are automatically deleted.

Value

sri returns a list with the following items.

prefs

agents' preference list.

matching

edgelist of matched pairs, inculding the number of the match (matching).

## Roommate problem with 10 players, given preferences:
 prefs <- matrix(rep(1:10, 10), 10, 10)
 sri(prefs=prefs)

## Roommate problem with 10 players, random preferences:
 sri(nAgents=10, seed=1)

## Roommate problem with no equilibrium matching:
 sri(nAgents=10, seed=2)

## Roommate problem with 3 equilibria:
 sri(nAgents=10, seed=3)
