About this book

This volume serves the multiple purposes of honoring Peter Fishburn's contributions, providing both expository and new papers from leading figures in each of the areas of Fishburn's research, and putting into one volume a wide variety of topics that are often not included together. These topics consider mathematical aspects of: social choice theory, decision theory, operations research, economics, political science, and psychology; as well as mathematical topics such as partial orders, graph theory, probability, and optimization. An important objective of this book is to demonstrate linkages that exist among these areas of research.
