A conjecture on the construction of orderings by Borda’s rule

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

For a fixed number n of individuals, and a given weak ordering of m alternatives, we ask: is there a profile of n preferences that maps to that ordering under Borda’s rule? Evidence is presented for a conjectured answer, which is settled except for the case of odd n and even m.
