Title:We vote, but do we get what we want?
Seminar:MASS Colloquium
Speaker:Don Saari, UC Irvine
Abstract:
We vote to select the choice of a pizza, of a member to a social group, of congress, of rankings of football teams, of almost everything. But, does the outcome reflect what the voters really wanted? Mathematics is providing that there is much to worry about. Indeed, by the end of this presentation, some in the audience will worry about some personal election in which she or he was involved.
