We present an algorithm that establishes a tight bound within this minimal amount of search, and show that any other algorithm would have to search strictly more.Expand

We analyze the emergence of large-scale education systems by modeling the incentives that the economic elite could have (collectively) to accept taxation destined to finance the education of… Expand

A conflicting knowledge base can be seen abstractly as a set of arguments and a binary relation characterising conflict among them. There may be multiple plausible ways to evaluate conflicting… Expand

This paper studies the strategic foundation of the Representative Voter theorem (Rothstein in: Pub Choice 72:193–212, 1991), also called the “second version” of the Median Voter Theorem.Expand

We present an algorithm that establishes a tight bound within this minimal amount of search, and show that any other algorithm would have to search strictly more.Expand

We introduce a Memetic Algorithm, based on the NSGAII (Non-Dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm II) acting on two chromosomes, to solve this problem.Expand

This paper presents a model of the conditions that may lead a small open economy towards a middle income trap. This situation has shown to be pervasive in Latin America. As Argentina is a salient… Expand

This paper studies coalition formation among self-interested agents that cannot make sidepayments in multiagent systems from a normative perspective.Expand
