  • Individual rankings are often aggregated using scoring rules: each position in each ranking brings a certain score; the total sum of scores determines the aggregate ranking. We study whether scoring rules can be robust to adding or deleting particular candidates, as occurs with spoilers in political elections and with athletes in sports due to doping allegations. In general the result is negative, but weaker robustness criteria pin down a one-parameter family of geometric scoring rules with the… CONTINUE READING
