The lecture introduces many-to-many matching markets. Stable matching theory has found broad applications in organ transplantation, school choice, or refugee resettlement. The lecture is divided into two parts. The first section provides an overview of matching theory, accessible without prior knowledge. In the second part, a current research project on many-to-many markets is presented. While stability concepts have been well-understood in one-to-one and one-to-many markets, there was a lack of conceptual understanding of stability in many-to-many markets. The presented work compares and analyzes various stability concepts, particularly in the context of large networked many-to-many markets, providing a clear interpretation of stability.
