Abstract : A procedure is developed which can be used to obtain the solution of a two-sided allocation problem (one in which there are two sides allocating resources with opposing interests). The method may be used for the solution of maximization, minimization or maximization-minimization (saddle value) problems. A second degree polynomial example is explained in detail to illustrate the procedure. The computer program and a sample output for this example are described. An exponential search problem is then discussed. A general application of the method is outlined. (Author)
