An article titled "Teens Take on 'Stable Marriage Problem'" in the Burlington Free Press features students in the Vermont Governor's Institute on Mathematical Sciences who tested the "stable marriage algorithm" in their course.
They're attending the Governor's Institute of Mathematical Sciences
this week, thanks to their performances in an annual exam. "Stable
marriage" was one of many conundrums they've been exploring throughout
