Description

In the 60s two mathematicians came up with an algorithm. The scientists jokingly suggested it should be used for matchmaking but never actually proposed a practical application. Half a century later, another scientist came up with an unconventional use case for the algorithm and proceeded with its implementation. So how did an abstract game theory model lead to a revolution in transplantology and thousands of lives saved?
