Finding Stable Matches: The Mathematics of Computer Dating

"Computer systems use mathematics to fly aircraft, carry out complex financial transactions and calculate the optimal design for racing cars.

But mathematics helps solve many other problems: how to assign students to rooms in university halls of residence? how a computer dating agency can most effectively pair off its clients?

Fascinating mathematical techniques have been developed for these problems and this lecture presents and discusses in simple terms, various non-numerical mathematical algorithms." [Ian Visits
