Mathematics and Democracy: Designing Better Voting and Fair-Division Procedures

by StevenJ.Brams (Author)

Synopsis

Voters often desert a preferred candidate for a more viable second choice to avoid wasting their vote. Likewise, parties to a dispute often find themselves unable to agree on a fair division of contested goods. This book shows how social-choice and game theory could make political and social institutions more democratic.
