Evolvement of influence in hierarchies
In this paper we characterize axiomatically a ranking method that compares positions in hierarchies in terms of the influence that they provide on the evolvement of knowledge. The comparison takes into account the number of direct and indirect subordinates of the positions and is based on the lexicographic ordering over vectors of a special form.
