And the Winners Are...An Axiomatic Approach to Selection from a Set

Checchi DanieleDe Fraja GianniVerzillo Stefano
CEIS Research Paper
We study here the problem of evaluating whether the selection from a set is close to the ranking determined by a measurable criterion. We propose a number of natural axioms and show that an index exists that satisfies all these axioms. The paper ends with an application of the index to Italian academia.
