On Finding a Stable Roommate, Job, or Spouse: A Case Study Crossing the Boundaries of Computer Science Courses


Journal Article

The use of real world problems as the basis for assignments in Computer Science courses is attractive for many reasons. At the same time it is difficult to find such a problem that offers the same richness that is found, for example, in sorting or searching. In this paper a problem is presented that has many real-world instances and which is pedagogically attractive at all levels of Computer Science from the level of a non-major's course to that of an advanced algorithms course. © 1992, ACM.
