Inequality measures for fair resource allocation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A method of measuring the degree of unfairness of a resource allocation scheme is presented. A survey of five inequality functions is done and a new inequality function is introduced. The sensitivities of all six inequality functions are analyzed and it is shown that the new inequality function is most sensitive to inequality of resource allocation. Numerical examples are also presented.
