analysis for the SelfSufficiency Project (SSP) sponsored by Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC). The SelfSufficiency Project is sponsored by HRDC. This paper was produced for SRDC. The opinions expressed herein are the authors ’ and do not necessarily reflect those of SRDC or HRDC. The Social Research and Demonstration Corporation is a nonprofit organization and registered charity with offices in Ottawa, Vancouver, and Sydney, Nova Scotia. SRDC was created specifically to develop, field test, and rigorously evaluate social programs. SRDC’s twopart mission is to help policymakers and practitioners identify social policies and programs that improve the wellbeing of all Canadians, with a special concern for the effects on the disadvantaged, and to raise the standards of evidence that are used in assessing social policies. As an intermediary organization, SRDC attempts to bridge the worlds of academic researchers, government policymakers, and ontheground program operators. Providing a vehicle for the development and management of complex demonstration projects, SRDC seeks to work in close partnership with provinces, the federal
Constructive Bounds and Exact Expectations for the Random Assignment Problem
, 1998
"... The random assignment problem is to choose a minimumcost perfect matching in a complete n x n bipartite graph, whose edge weights are chosen randomly from some distribution such as the exponential distribution with mean 1. In this case it is known that the expectation does not grow unboundedly with ..."

A generalization of the random assignment problem
"... Abstract. We give a conjecture for the expected value of the optimal kassignment in an m × nmatrix, where the entries are all exp(1)distributed random variables or zeros. We prove this conjecture in the case there is a zerocost k − 1assignment. Assuming our conjecture, we determine some limits, ..."

The ζ(2) Limit in the Random Assignment Problem
, 2000
"... The random assignment (or bipartite matching) problem asks about An = min P n i=1 c(i; (i)), where (c(i; j)) is a n \Theta n matrix with i.i.d. entries, say with exponential(1) distribution, and the minimum is over permutations . M'ezard and Parisi (1987) used the replica method from sta ..."

Teaching Random Assignment: Do You Believe It Works?
"... Textbook authors admonish students to check on the comparability of two randomly assigned groups by conducting statistical tests on pretest means to determine if randomization worked. A Monte Carlo study was conducted on a sample of n = 2 per group, where each participant’s personality profile was r ..."

Structure and complexity of ex post efficient random assignments

"... In the random assignment problem, objects are randomly assigned to agents keeping in view the agents ’ preferences over objects. A random assignment specifies the probability of an agent getting an object. We examine the structural and computational aspects of ex post efficiency of random assignmen ..."
