''Recursive methods for discrete claims problems''
( 2017, Vol. 37 No.3 )
We consider claims problems with indivisible goods. Specifically, by applying the recursive procedures proposed by Giménez-Gomez and Marco-Gil (2014) and Giménez-Gómez and Peris (2014), we ensure the fulfilment of order preservation and balancedness, considered by many authors as minimal requirements of fairness. Moreover, we retrieve the discrete constrained equal losses and the discrete constrained equal awards rules (Herrero and Martinez, 2008). By the recursive imposition of a lower bound and an upper bound, we obtain the average between them.
