Abstract [en]

We prove the main conjecture of the paper "On the expected value of the minimum assignment" by Marshall W. Buck, Clara S. Chan, and David P. Robbins [Random Structures Algorithms 21 (2002), 33-58]. This is an exact formula for the expected value of a certain type of random assignment problem. It generalizes the formula 1 + 1/4 + ...+ 1/n(2) for the n by n exp(1) random assignment problem.
