AbstractIn this paper, concepts from the theory of electoral competition are applied to the classical problem of dividing one unit of a homogeneous good. If the Uncovered set selects almost all divisions, other concepts (Minimal Covering set, Bipartisan set) predict that very unequal divisions are not selected.
