Title from slide title.
The Second HKUST International Forum on Probability and Statistics (2013), held 19 December, 2013, at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Co-sponsored by the HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study and the Center for Statistical Science.
Abstract: The 2012 Nobel Prize in Economics is awarded to Alvin E. Roth and Lloyd S. Shapley for the theory of stable allocations and the practice of market design. The most influential work made by Alvin Roth was his seminal theory of matching organ donors with patients. This novel empirical study has provided and enhanced Shapley's basic theory and the application of Gale-Shapley algorithm in medical practice of organ exchanges. In this talk, the speaker will first present an overview of Alvin Roth's classical static organ exchange system, including graphic formulation and integer programming optimization. The speaker will introduce recent work on probabilistic organ exchange systems and optimal strategies of matching organs from living donors with biologically unrelated recipients. Through various microsimulation models, the speaker will show that our new organ donation system outperforms Roth's organ donation system.
