A few papers are working their way through the journal system:
- Distance rationalization of anonymous and homogeneous voting rules (with Benjamin Hadjibeyli) is finally accepted by Social Choice and Welfare. Now I just have to get them to agree to a reasonable alteration to their standard copyright form. This paper has a long history, and during the refereeing process we split it in two and wrote another paper to serve as the introduction to this one. However the journal rejected the other paper, so let’s hope this one stands on its own.
- Multi-district preference modelling (with Geoffrey Pritchard) is working its way through refereeing, and we hope it will be accepted soon. In any case, I think it is a useful paper.
- Several papers driven by my excellent PhD student Samin Aref, which make up his PhD thesis, are, in reverse order: about to appear in Journal of Complex Networks, appeared in a book, and under submission (x2). Balance and Frustration in Signed Networks ; An exact method for computing the frustration index in signed networks using binary programming; Computing the Line Index of Balance Using Integer Programming Optimisation ; Measuring Partial Balance in Signed Networks
- Manipulation of consular election rules with my excellent ex-honours student (now way beyond that!) Egor Ianovski is wending its way through refereeing, and I expect it to be accepted soon. In any case, it is a technical but nice paper.
Once all these are finally done, I can get back to some work on generating functions, after several years, which I am very much looking forward to.
