Stable Matching Games [article]

Felipe Garrido-Lucero, Rida Laraki
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In each case, we give the necessary and sufficient conditions for the set of stable allocations to be non-empty, we study its geometry (full/semi-lattice), and provide an algorithm that converges to its  ...  We offer a further extension by assuming that matched couples obtain their payoff endogenously as the outcome of a strategic game they have to play in a usual non-cooperative sense (without commitment)  ...  J.1 Computing a Nash stable allocation As already discussed, internal Nash stable allocations for matching with transfer problems correspond to matching profiles in which no agent makes a positive transfer  ...

DORE: An Experimental Framework to Enable Outband D2D Relay in Cellular Networks [article]

Arash Asadi, Vincenzo Mancuso, Rohit Gupta
2017 arXiv   pre-print
In particular, analytical results on D2D performance for offloading and relay are very promising, but no experimental evidence validates these results to date.  ...  Our experiments reveal that outband D2D communications are suitable for relaying in a large variety of delay-sensitive cellular applications, and that DORE enables notable gains even with a few active  ...  The authors would like to thank National Instruments for the support in LabVIEW FPGA code development.  ...
