Consensus as a Tool for Conflict Solving

  • Ngoc Thanh Nguyen
Part of the Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing book series (AI&KP)

In this chapter we present a case study of consensus theory and a general model of consensus. This model uses the model for conflict presented in Chapter 2. We define the general notion of consensus and postulates for consensus choice functions. Next, classes of consensus functions are defined and analyzed referring to postulates. A number of other notions such as consensus susceptibility, quality of consensus, or reduction of consensus number are also presented and analyzed.
