Network flow methods for electoral systems

  title={Network flow methods for electoral systems},
  author={Friedrich Pukelsheim and Federica Ricca and Bruno Simeone and Andrea Scozzari and Paolo Serafini},
Researchers in the area of electoral systems have recently turned their attention to network flow techniques with the aim to resolve certain practically relevant problems arising in this area. The aim of the present paper is review some of this work, showing the applicability of these techniques even to problems of a very different nature. Major emphasis will be placed on “biproportional apportionment”, a problem that frequently arises in proportional electoral systems, but which in some… CONTINUE READING
