Prof. Roberto Lucchetti, Politecnico di Milano: Matching theory for kidney transplant
As it is well know, the source of healthy kidneys are deceased donors and living donors. However, deceased donors are far from being sufficient while incompatibility issues are a relevant obstacle in case of living donors. Thus various crossover methods have been applied in recent times in order to have more people receiving healthy kidneys. In the second part of the talk I will give a short overview of the proposed methods, based on matching algorithms on graphs.
