Abstract

In this paper we consider a fuzzy variant of the Borda count taking into account agents' intensities of preference. This fuzzy Borda count is obtained by means of score gradation and normalization processes from its original pattern. The advantages of the Borda count hold, and are even improved, providing an appropriate scheme in collective decision making. In addition, both classic and fuzzy Borda counts are related to approval voting, establishing a unified framework from distinct points of view. Copyright 2002 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
