These problems play an important role in the ongoing Vietnamese land-allocation reform, as well as in the optimization of matrix multiplication algorithms. We show that the first problem can be solved to optimality in O(nlogn) , while the two others are NP-hard. We propose mixed integer linear programming formulations and a binary search-based approach for solving the NP-hard problems. Experimental analyses are conducted to compare the solution approaches in terms of computational efficiency and solution quality, for different objectives.Quoc Trung BuiThibaut VidalMinh Hoang Haminhhoang.ha@vnu.edu.vn
