Try the sliders in the live demos to see the allocations in action; key in your own particulars for Spliddit to e-mail you the most equitable results. This not-for-profit academic endeavor aims to provide easy access to fair division methods and to communicate the beauty and value of theoretical research in computer science, mathematics, and economics.|
