Abstract

In questo lavoro diciamo che una relazione di preferenza (ossia irriflessiva)P èregolare (o unordinamento debole) se tanto essa quanto la sua relazione di non paragonabilità sono transitive; diciamo anche che una relazione di preferenzaP * costituisce un'estensione convessa di un'altra relazione di preferenzaP se vale l'inclusioneP⊆P * eP * è regolare ed a valori convessi. Provereino che un'estensione convessa dellaP esiste se e solo se ogni insieme non vuoto e finito di alternativeA non è incluso nell'involucro convesso dell'insieme ∪ x∈A P(x).
