Publication Date
In a general class of measure-partitioning or fair-division problems, the extremal case occurs when the measures are proportional. Applications are given to classical and recent fair-division problems, and to statistical decision theory, mathematical physics, Banach space theory, and inequalities for continuous random variables.
