Agents of a barter exchange market seek to exchange items without the aid of money. The goal is to carefully coordinate the transactions so as to maximize overall utility. In this thesis, we propose clearing methods that besides trader agents, also account for donor and receiver agents. New insights will be presented regarding the topics execution time, optimal exchange value and the effect of donor agents. This thesis will present to the reader an extensive introduction to the required tools, clearing methods and implementation details. This thesis builds on the research done by (Abraham et al., 2007) and (Glorie, 2014), who have investigated kidney exchange markets.
