Matchings and Copeland's Method [article]

Telikepalli Kavitha, Rohit Vaish
2021 arXiv   pre-print
However stable matchings, and more generally, popular matchings need not exist when G is non-bipartite.  ...  We introduce a relaxation of both popular matchings and Copeland winners called weak Copeland winners.  ...  To define these matchings, we draw inspiration from the voting interpretation of popular matchings. Copeland's method.  ...

Hyperbolic mild-slope equations extended to account for rapidly varying topography

Changhoon Lee, Woo Sun Park, Yong-Sik Cho, Kyung Doug Suh
1998 Coastal Engineering  
The resultant model, which includes higher-order bottom effect terms proportional to the square of bottom slope and to the bottom curvature, is merely an extension of the Copeland's model to account for  ...  The model developed is verified against other numerical or experimental results related to wave reflection from a plane slope with different inclination, from a patch of periodic ripples, and from an arc-shaped  ...  In this study, the finite element method or the eigenfunction expansion method is employed where appropriate in order to examine the accuracy of the model we develop and the existing Copeland's model.  ...

Election Algorithms Applied to the Global Aggregation in Networks of Comparators

Łukasz Sosnowski, Andrzej Pietruszka, Stanisław Łazowy
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems  
We have described and adopted six election methods which have been used as an aggregator of partial results. We have performed experiments on the data gathered at the fire ground.  ...  All of them have been well described and results have been compared. The paper includes a discussion and interpretation of results obtained.  ...  Copeland's method This is a condorset [19] method which returns results in form of a ranking.  ...

Does the solar system compute the laws of motion?

Douglas Ian Campbell, Yi Yang
2019 Synthese  
Here we show that the algorithm execution account entails limited pancomputationalism, despite Copeland's argument to the contrary.  ...  The counterfactual account of physical computation is simple and, for the most part, very attractive.  ...  In Copeland's words, it 'consists of two parts: (1) the designation of certain parts of the entity as label-bearers, and (2) the method for specifying the label borne by each label-bearing part at any  ...

Approval-Based Elections and Distortion of Voting Rules [article]

Grzegorz Pierczyński, Piotr Skowron
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We determine acceptability-distortion for a number of rules, including Plurality, Borda, k-Approval, Veto, the Copeland's rule, Ranked Pairs, the Schulze's method, and STV.  ...  We consider elections where both voters and candidates can be associated with points in a metric space and voters prefer candidates that are closer to those that are farther away.  ...  In particular, if ℓ = 1, this bound equals From the above theorem, we get that for ℓ = 1 each Condorcet election method matches the lower bound from Theorem 4.1.  ...
