Preferential fuzzy sets: a key to voting patterns

Murali, V. (2008) Preferential fuzzy sets: a key to voting patterns. In: Inaugural lecture, 15th April 2008, Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa. (Unpublished)




There is a one-to-one correspondence between ordered partitions and kernels of fuzzy subsets under a natural equivalence relation on them called preferential equality, on any n-element set Xn. We discuss some aspects of this correspondence with respect to counting voter’s choice or preference through the notions of Flags, Keychains and Pinned-flags.
