Abstract
Description
The formal mathematical theory of fair division has a rich history dating back at least to Steinhaus in the 1940's. In recent work in this area, several general classes of errors have appeared along with confusion about the necessity and sufficiency of certain hypotheses. It is the purpose of this article to correct the scientific record and to point out with concrete examples some of the pitfalls that have led to these mistakes. These examples may serve as guideposts for future work.
