Louise Hay Logic Seminar
Arrow's Impossibility Theorem
Abstract: The development of mathematical logic in the twentieth century was characterized by a number of negative results: The Incompleteness Theorems, the MDRP theorem, the nonexistence of solutions to the Halting Problem, and so on. Arrow's Theorem, which essentially asserts that there is no fair voting system, appears to fall into this mold. In this talk I will present Arrow's Theorem and discuss its relationship to mathematical logic.
