Method of Markers
The applet below is an illustration for the Method of Markers - one of the methods of the so called fair division. The method of markers applies to the situation where the large number of goods of a compatible value must be distributed among a relatively small number of "players". The instructions for using the applet are available on a separate page and can also be read under the first tab directly in the applet.
