The Hungarian algorithm, or how mathematics helps in the allocation of assignments

Hello friends! In this article, I would like to tell you about an interesting algorithm from the discipline "Investigation of Operations" namely, about the Hungarian method and how to solve the assignment problem with it. I will touch upon the theory in which cases and for what purposes this algorithm is applicable, I will stage it out in a fictitious example, and I will share my modest sketch of the code for its implementation in R. Let's begin!
