Ranking Sets of Objects

  • Barbera, S.
  • Bossert, W.
  • Pattanaik, P.K.

We provide a survey of the literature on ranking sets of objects. The interpretations of those set ranking include those employed in the theory of choice under complete uncertianty, rankings of opportunity sets, set rankings that appear in matching theory, and the structure of assemly proferences.
