Voting Theory for Democracy

  • Publisher: http://www.dataweb.nl/~cool

  • 342 pp
The book develops the theory from first basics to an advanced level, using Mathematica for the steps in the discussion. Confusions around Arrow's Theorem are clarified, and the Borda Fixed Point method is developed as an attractive method that compromises between the Borda and Condorcet methods. The book has been written so that it can be used "as is", but when one also has the software (that is included in The Economics Pack from the same author and publisher) then one has an interactive working or study environment where the software takes away the tediousness of voting calculations.

Note: The software has been updated for Mathematica 5.2. Contents
