Abstract

Game theory deals with the mathematical modeling and analysis of conflict and cooperation in the interaction of multiple decision makers. This thesis adopts two game theoretic methods to analyze a range of assignment problems that arise in various economic situations. The first method has as objective to study allocations and matchings that satisfy certain desirable properties, such as envy-freeness and stability. The second method employs cooperative game theory in which it is assumed that the decision makers are able to make binding agreements before the actual decisions are made.
