Description
We study the problem of fair rent division that entails splitting the rent and allocating the rooms of an apartment among roommates (agents) in a fair manner. In this setup, a distribution of the rent and an accompanying allocation is said to be fair if it is envy free, i.e., under the imposed rents, no agent has a strictly stronger preference for any other agent’s room. This work develops approximation algorithms for fair rent division with minimal assumptions.
