On Multidimensional Inequality in Partitions of Multisets
AbstractWe study multidimensional inequality in partitions of finite multisets with thresholds. In such a setting, a Lorenz-like preorder, a family of functions preserving such a preorder, and a counterpart of the Pigou-Dalton transfers are defined, and a version of the celebrated Hardy-Littlewood-Pölya characterization results is provided.
