How funny; as soon as he wins the Nobel someone has rushed on here to make sure the first thing about him is that he's a "Jewish American", three days ago he was simply American. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.244.35.123 (talk) 05:25, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Inaccurate claim[edit]

The article currently includes: "In 1999 Roth redesigned the matching program to ensure stable matches even with married couples." However, as one of the cited pieces makes clear (Roth, Deferred Acceptance Algorithms: History, Theory, Practice, and Open Questions) there is no guarantee that the set of stable matches in nonempty with married couples although in practice it is rare for it to be empty. I'm not entirely sure of a better phrasing but the current one seems incorrect. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.111.15.59 (talk) 07:40, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
