    In this work we discuss the influence of electronic correlation in finite and extended systems. In particular we stress the fact that the electronic correlation renormalizes the particleparticle interaction in a characteristic way and interpolate these ideas, well-known for extended systems, to...

  • Nash bargaining theory when the number of alternatives can be finite. Mariotti, Marco // Social Choice & Welfare;1998, Vol. 15 Issue 3, p413 

    Abstract. Nash (1950) considered a domain of convex bargaining problems. We analyse domains including, or even consisting of, finite problems and provide various characterisations of the Nash Bargaining Solution (NBS). In particular, we extend Kaneko's (1980) results. Received: 12 July 1996 /...

    Duals of the groups pg and p4gm are constructed. (1) The group pg has only one band representation (an elementary one) equivalent to the regular representation. There exists a quasiband representation close to it, of multiplicity two, which separates the branches of the band. Finite groups which...

  • Antimatroids of finite character. Wahl, Nathalie // Journal of Geometry;2001, Vol. 70 Issue 1/2, p168 

    We give an axiomatisation of antimatroids of finite character through compatible orderings. P. H. Edelman and R. E. Jamison show that, in the finite case, the building blocks of antimatroids are in some sense their compatible orderings. We propose a definition of antimatroids for the general...
