We consider an operatorial model of alliances between three political parties which interact with their electors, with the undecided voters, and with the electors of the other parties. This extends what was done in a previous paper, where this last type of interactions was not considered. Of course, taking them into account makes the system closer to real life. To produce an exactly solvable model, we restrict here to quadratic Hamiltonians, so that the equations of motion turn out to be linear… 

Operators , Heisenberg dynamics and politics

In a series of recent papers, [1]-[4], a possible way to describe interactions between political parties has been proposed in more and more refined versions and analyzed. Each version describes a

An Operator View on Alliances in Politics

We introduce the concept of an operator decision making technique and apply it to a concrete political problem: should a given political party form a coalition or not? We focus on the situation of

Decisions in elections—transitive or intransitive quantum preferences

Our preferences depend on the circumstances in which we reveal them. We will introduce a dependence which allows us to illustrate the relation between the possibility of winning of a particular

An Expository Development of a Mathematical Model of the Electoral Process

The fundamental process of politics is the aggregation of citizens' preferences into a collective—a social—choice. We develop, interpret, and explain non-technically in this expository essay the

Modeling the Influence of Public’s Memory on the Corruption–Popularity Dilemma in Politics

The synergy of a good public’s memory and immediate knowledge of corruption may often help the people to protect themselves from political corruption and may greatly enhance the popularity of a politician with poor communication skills, provided that he/she aims at maximizing benefit from popularity during his/her mandate.

An Application of the Theory of Open Quantum Systems to Model the Dynamics of Party Governance in the US Political System

The Gorini-Kossakowski-Sudarshan-Lindblad equation allows us to model the process of decision making in US elections. The crucial point we attempt to make is that the voter’s mental state can be

Quantum Models of Cognition and Decision

The foundations for modelling probabilistic-dynamic systems using two aspects of quantum theory, 'contextuality' and 'quantum entanglement', are introduced, which allow cognitive phenomena to be modeled in non-reductionist ways.
