At the same time, from the theoretical perspective, the research extends the literature on one-sided matching to cases where supply of resources is dynamic and resources can be stored.I also study the theoretical relationship between two important matching mechanisms: Top Trading Cycles (TTC) mechanism and Top Trading Cycles and Chains (TTCC) mechanism. I show that given a specific chain selection rule of TTCC, it can be reduced to TTC. However, this applies to only one special case and do not generalize to cases where other types of chain selection rules are used.Given the obvious link between the mechanism design...
