Mathematics and Politics Strategy, Voting, Power, and Proof

我有本關於math嘅科普書,叫Mathematics and politics,內容係關於social choice, fairness, political power,game theory。係透過定義,證明相關result。其中一個大家可能有興趣d,就係佢證明左點解世上冇公平嘅選舉方法,即係arrow’s impossibility principle,本書都有證明左類似version。BTW, Arrow前幾日過左身。

From Amazon:
Five major topics are covered including a model of escalation, game theoretic models of international conflict, yes-no voting systems, political power, and social choice. Each topic is discussed in an introductory chapter and revisited in more depth in a later chapter. This new edition has added co-author, Allison Pacelli, and two new chapters on “Fairness” and “More Fairness.” The examples and the exercises have been updated and enhanced throughout.
