other interesting mechanism is the probabilistic serial mech-anism [Bogomolnaia and Moulin, 2001]. Agents simultane-ously eat their most preferred remaining item at some uni-form rate. In general, this results in a randomized allocation, which can be implemented as a probability distribution over discrete allocations.

Both mechanisms are nonmanipulable in a strong sense, but the latter is Pareto superior to the former and serves a larger (expected) number of agents. The PS equilibrium outcome is easier to compute than the RP outcome; on the other hand, RP is easier to implement than PS.
