# An algorithm to find the maximum profitable assignment

Given a set of workers $w_1,...,w_m$ and and a set of tasks $t_1,...,t_n$, and a $m\times n$ matrix $P$ s.t. $P(i,j)$ is the profit of assigning worker $i$ to task $j$. One worker can only be assigned to one task, and one task can only have one worker. We want to find the maximum profit of all possible assignments.

Does anyone knows an algorithm or approach that can efficiently solve this problem and help provide a name or reference? Thank you.
