Mathematics, Power and Democracy: A mathematical look at voting systems.

Speaker: Werner Kirsch, Department of Mathematics, Fern University, Hagen, Germany

  • This event has passed.

Abstract: In this talk, we present some methods and results from the mathematical theory of voting. These results can directly be applied to real-world voting systems, like a Council of states (Rajya Sabha or the Council of Ministers of the European Union). In particular, we will discuss how a fair representation of states in a union can be realized.
