Obtaining representations for probabilities of voting outcomes with effectively unlimited precision integer arithmetic
A procedure is developed to obtain representations for the probability of election outcomes with the Impartial Anonymous Culture Condition and the Maximal Culture Condition. The procedure is based upon a process of performing arithmetic with integers, while maintaining absolute precision with very large integer numbers. The procedure is then used to develop probability representations for a number of different voting outcomes, which have to date been considered to be intractable to obtain with the use of standard algebraic techniques.
