Fairly Dividing Mixtures of Goods and Chores under Lexicographic Preferences [article]

Hadi Hosseini, Sujoy Sikdar, Rohit Vaish, Lirong Xia
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We study fair allocation of indivisible goods and chores among agents with lexicographic preferences – a subclass of additive valuations.  ...  In sharp contrast to the goods-only setting, we show that an allocation satisfying envy-freeness up to any item (EFX) could fail to exist for a mixture of objective goods and chores.  ...  Acknowledgements Hadi Hosseini acknowledges support from NSF IIS grants #2052488 and #2107173. Lirong Xia acknowledges support from NSF IIS grants #1453542, #171633, and #2107173.  ...

The challenge is to think what further use to make of them. WordNet is a proposal for a more effective combination of traditional lexicographic information and modern high-speed computation.  ...  Unfortunately, there is no obvious alternative, no other simple way for lexicographers to keep track of what has been done or for readers to find the word they are looking for.  ...  Together the two provide a fairly comprehensive view of the WordNet system.  ...
