Handbook of Computational Social Choice

Vincent Conitzer et al. (editors)


Cambridge University Press

The rapidly growing field of computational social choice, at the intersection of computer science and economics, deals with the computational aspects of collective decision making. Computer scientist Conitzer, Kimberly J. Jenkins University Professor of New Technologies, and his fellow editors take readers to the intersection of computer science and economics with this handbook, written by 36 prominent members of the growing computational social choice community.

Chapters devoted to each of the field's major themes offer detailed introductions. Topics include voting theory (such as the computational complexity of winner determination and manipulation in elections), fair allocation (such as algorithms for dividing divisible and indivisible goods), coalition formation (such as matching and hedonic games), and many more.
