Game Theory (Voting)
Weekly Meetings - TBA
Voting is everywhere in our lives, whether it is how we choose our next president every four years or how your friend group decides where to eat tomorrow. The need to select winners from people’s preferences is a core aspect of social interaction.
Our cohort dives into what voting is from a more formal and mathematical perspective. We will look at different basic voting systems and the aspects that differentiate them. Additionally, the flaws and positive aspects of most modern voting structures will be discussed. Cohort members should become able to think about voting from a more formal perspective entering next year where voting will become a centerpiece of our society.
