Minisymposium (ID: SS-DF)

Decisions and Fairness

Marc Kilgour (Wilfrid Laurier University), Bill Zwicker (Union College)

When individuals vote in an election, when the budget for a city is determined, or when goods are to be allocated among several deserving parties, individual choices or preferences must be converted into a collective outcome by some mechanism. Which mechanism is best? To address this question is to confront the tension among fairness, efficiency, tractability, conceptual transparency, and strategic manipulability. This session will feature applications of mathematics and computer science relevant to economics and political science, and more generally to the understanding of mechanisms, group decisions, sharing, and fairness.
