Social choice theory deals with aggregating the preferences of multiple individuals regarding several available alternatives, a situation colloquially known as voting. In his new book, Reshef Meir overviews recent and classic research on two fundamental questions: First, under which conditions can we design truthful voting rules, where all voters have an incentive to reveal their true preferences? Second, what is the structure of voting equilibrium when voters are strategic?
The book is intended for people with some formal background in either game theory or social choice, and compares many models and results from different disciplines in an accessible way. It also contains dozens of exercises and is recommended as a textbook for advanced courses.
