We will discuss the recent literature on microeconomic rules of fair division with a focus on:

- the critical discussion of the concepts of fairness developed by microeconomists and mathematicians

- their approximation, proposed and studied by computer scientists, when we allocate truly indivisible objects

- the appeal and limits of the competitive approach to fairness

- the applications of the theoretical results to user-friendly platforms like Spliddit.org
