Space Assignment
The Sol Starfleet is having trouble assigning astronauts to jobs on its starships. Each astronaut has only a limited set of skills, and therefore can only be assigned to some roles. Each role has a maximum number of astronauts that it can accommodate – any more and they start getting in each other’s way. Every astronaut must be assigned to a single job, and jobs are not required to be full. Can you devise an algorithm that either assigns astronauts to jobs or determines that no assignment exists?
