Swati Basak, Bireshwar Dass Mazumdar
2014 International Journal of Mathematics Trends and Technology  
In this work, we presented a multiagent system based for this e-learning scenario based on course selection theory.  ...  We have described here coalition formation among the student agents who are going to select the courses which will be running in the university.  ...  We have proposed an agent-based simulation framework to study the emergence, self-organization and student's agent coalition formations in e-learning voting procedure.  ...

Eliminating Group Agency

Lars J. K. Moen
2021 Economics and Philosophy  
Such groups, group-agent realists argue, are agents in control of their own attitude formation.  ...  Only by eliminating group agency from our social explanations can we see how individuals vote strategically to gain control of their groups and produce collective attitudes we cannot make sense of if we  ...  attitude formation.  ...

Getting along to get ahead: The role of social context in tournament promotion and reward systems

George C. Banks, Christopher E. Whelpley, Eean R. Crawford, Ernest H. O'Boyle, Sven Kepes, Zulqurnain Ali
2021 PLoS ONE  
Interestingly, we find that group dissimilarity based on gender, race, and age, largely does not play a role in advancement in the tournaments.  ...  Further, the strength of ties fails to mediate between variables such as group dissimilarity and initial tie formation.  ...  Early group cohesion. We also based our measure of early group cohesion on votes cast, but this time accounting for the similarity in voting patterns within the initial teams.  ...

Affirmative action or just discrimination? A study on the endogenous emergence of quotas

Loukas Balafoutas, Brent J. Davis, Matthias Sutter
2016 Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization  
If approved by the vote, a quota rule is implemented that favors women in one treatment, but members of an artificially created group based on random color assignment in another treatment.  ...  Quota rules based on an arbitrary criterion, however, are less often approved and lead to strong individual reactions of advantaged and disadvantaged group members and to efficiency losses.  ...  Abstaining is neither a vote for the format in Stage 2 nor the Tournament-B format: therefore, those group members who choose to abstain have no influence on the outcome of the vote.  ...

The Cleavage Model, Ethnicity and Voter Alignment in Africa: Conceptual and Methodological Problems Revisited

Gero Erdmann
2007 Social Science Research Network  
The paper maintains that the cleavage model, although modified to include ethnicity, still provides heuristically the best foundation for the explanation of party formation and voting behaviour in Africa  ...  Finally, it is safe to assume that the relevance of ethnicity for the formation of party systems and voter alignment is not a uniform pattern across Africa, but will differ from one country to the other  ...  The ethnic party is based on one ethnic group, while the ethnic congress party is based on several such groups and is in a sense a multi-ethnic party.  ...
