Weighted Random Popular Matchings

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Let A be the set of n applicants and I be the set of m items. We assume that the set A is partitioned into A_{1},A_{2},\ldots,A_{k} and each A_{i} is assigned a weight w_{i} such that w_{1}>w_{2}>\cdots>w_{k}>0. Let us consider the problem of matching applicants to items, where each applicant x \in A provides a preference list defined on items. We say that an applicant x prefers an item p than an item q if p is located at higher position than q in the preference list. For any matchings M and M', we say that an applicant x prefers M over M' if x prefers M}(x) over M'(x). We say that M is more popular than M' if the total weight of applicants preferring M over M' is larger than that of applicants preferring M' over M, and define M to be a k-weighted popular matching if there are no other matchings that are more popular than M. For the case where k=1, Mahdian showed that if m > 1.42n, then
a random instance of the matching problem has a popular matching with high probability, but nothing is known for the k-weighted matching problems. In this paper, we analyze the k-weighted matching problems, and show that for any \beta such that m=\beta n, (lower bound) if \beta/n^{1/3}=o(1), then a random instance of the 2-weighted matching problems does not have a 2-weighted popular matching with probability 1-o(1); (upper bound) if n^{1/3}/\beta=o(1), then a random instance of the 2-weighted matching problems has a 2-weighted popular matching with probability 1-o(1).
