On two new social choice correspondences

  • Borm, Peter
  • van den Brink, Rene
  • Levinsky, Rene
  • Slikker, Marco

Preferences of a set of n individuals over a set of alternatives can be represented by a preference profile being an n-tuple of preference relations over these alternatives.A social choice correspondence assigns to every preference profile a subset of alternatives that can be viewed as the `most prefered' alternatives by the society consisting of all individuals.Two new social choice correspondences are introduced and analyzed.Both are Pareto optimal and are refinements of the well known Top cycle correspondence in case the corresponding simple majority win digraph is a tournament.One of them even is such a refinement for arbitrary preference profiles.
