Quaternary dichotomous voting rules
In this paper we provide a general model of "quaternary" dichotomous voting rules (QVRs), namely, voting rules for making collective dichotomous decisions (to accept or reject a proposal), based on vote profiles in which ...
Turnout Intention and Social Networks
How can networking affect the turnout in an election? We present a simple model to explain turnout as a result of a dynamic process of formation of the intention to vote within Erdös-Renyi random networks. Citizens have ...
An axiomatization of success
In this paper we give an axiomatic characterization of three families of measures of success defined by Laruelle and Valenciano (2005) for voting rules.
To appove or not to approve: this is not the only question
This paper deals with electing candidates. In elections voters are frequently offered a small set of actions (voting in favor of one candidate, voting blank, spoiling the ballot, and not showing up). Thus voters can ...
Replicator Dynamics and Evolutionary Stable Strategies in Heterogeneous Games
We generalise and extend the work of Iñarra and Laruelle (2011) by studying two person symmetric evolutionary games with two strategies, a heterogenous population with two possible types of individuals and incomplete ...
Discriminating by Tagging: Artificial Distinction, Real Discrimination
We introduce a new variation of the hawk-dove game suggested by an experiment that studies the behavior of a group of domestic fowls when a subgroup has been marked. Speci cally we consider a population formed by two types ...
To disqualify or not to qualify: This is the other question
(Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, UPV/EHU, 2016-10-10)
In this paper we study ternary trichotomous rules, that allows for three levels of input, positive, neutral and negative and three levels of output, positive, undetermined and negative. We illustrate the interest of such ...
Emergence of Cooperation in Heterogeneous Population: A Discrete-Time Replicator Dynamics Analysis
(Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, 2013-12)
The emergence of cooperation is analyzed in heterogeneous populations where individuals can be classified in two groups according to their phenotypic appearance. Phenotype recognition is assumed for all individuals: ...
Neutral candidates in approval and disapproval vote
(Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, UPV/EHU, 2017-11-24)
In this article, the question is to select the “best” candidates within a set of candidates when voters cast approval-disapproval ternary ballots. That is, three options are offered to voters: casting a vote “in favor”, a ...
Proficiency, Attitude and Conventions in Minority Languages
(Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, UPV/EHU, 2015-10)
In this paper we study a simple mathematical model of a bilingual community in which all agents are f luent in the majority language but only a fraction of the population has some degree of pro ficiency in the minority ...
