Unformatted text preview: Since the paper only introduces the social choices algorithms, the chapter compares and contrasts both social welfare and social choices functions. While the chapter discusses the plurality in a long manner, the paper just mentions in a few sentences. In conclusion, the paper and the chapter have some differences in introducing algorithms. The paper includes more calculations and formulas. The chapter has more explanatory definitions. Reading both of them will be a good source of understanding social welfare and choices. Questions 1. What are the parameters that make the algorithms difficult to manipulate? 2. What are the main differences between Copeland or second order Copeland? 3. What are the tradeoffs between a unreliable voting system with an algorithm hard to abuse and a reliable voting system with a weak algorithm?...
