Strategy-proofness and the strict core in a market with indivisibilities. (English) Zbl 0804.90014
Summary: We show that, in markets with indivisibilities (typified by the Shapley- Scarf housing market), the strict core mechanism is categorically determined by three assumptions: individual rationality, Pareto optimality and strategy-proofness.
