Graduate Student Combinatorics Seminar Sponsored by DIMACS

The Mathematics of Elections

Rashmika Goswami - Rutgers University

Location:  Graduate Student Lounge, 7th Floor, Hill Center
Date & time: Wednesday, 22 February 2023 at 12:15PM - 1:15PM

Abstract: Social Choice Theory is a very broad topic, but I will outline some key definitions and results, including the infamous impossibility theorems for multicandidate voting. I'll also discuss some real-world workarounds for these problems, different types of elections that have been studied, and possibly even ideas for moving beyond elections.
