Abstract:

The majority method for an odd N, a is before b in the collective order iff more individual orders rank a before b than b before a does not always yield a total order. The frequency of the so-called Condorcet effect has been extensively derived and computed. Following the proof of impossibility theorem an example of possible escape by some natural restrictions on the domain of the individual orders is given. Since that time, various other conditions have been proposed Then there began to appear some sufficient and necessary in a certain sense conditions. The value restriction condition is among them.
