Publication Open Access New trends on the numerical representability of semiordered structures(EUSFLAT, 2012) Abrísqueta Usaola, Francisco Javier; Campión Arrastia, María Jesús; García Catalán, Olga Raquel; Miguel Velasco, Juan Ramón de; Estevan Muguerza, Asier; Induráin Eraso, Esteban; Zudaire Sarobe, Margarita; Agud, L.; Candeal, Juan Carlos; Díaz, S.; Martinetti, D.; Montes Rodríguez, Susana; Gutiérrez García, J.; Automática y Computación; Automatika eta KonputazioaShow more We introduce a survey, including the historical background, on di erent techniques that have recently been issued in the search for a characterization of the representability of semiordered structures, in the sense of Scott and Suppes, by means of a real-valued function and a strictly positive threshold of discrimination.Show more Publication Open Access An approach to distributed systems from orderings and representability(Springer, 2024) Estevan Muguerza, Asier; Institute for Advanced Research in Business and Economics - INARBE; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate Publikoa, JIUPNA19-2022Show more In the present paper, we propose a new approach on ‘distributed systems’: the processes are represented through total orders and the communications are characterized by means of biorders. The resulting distributed systems capture situations met in various fields (such as computer science, economics and decision theory). We investigate questions associated to the numerical representability of order structures, relating concepts of economics and computing to each other. The concept of ‘quasi-finite partial orders’ is introduced as a finite family of chains with a communication between them. The representability of this kind of structure is studied, achieving a construction method for a finite (continuous) Richter–Peleg multi-utility representation.Show more Publication Open Access A mathematical approach to law and deal modelling: legislation and agreements(MDPI, 2021) Benito Ostolaza, Juan Miguel; Campión Arrastia, María Jesús; Estevan Muguerza, Asier; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Research in Business and Economics - INARBE; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Estadística, Informática y MatemáticasShow more Social norms are a set of rules to be followed by the people of a community in order to have a better coexistence, to which the behaviors, tasks, and activities of the human being must be adjusted. The set or system of norms, rules, or duties regulates the actions of individuals among themselves. This work presents a new and original approach to the situations of agreement as well as to the constructions of regulations. This is done by giving a mathematical formalization to the set of all possible agreements or regulations, so that, then, the proximity between them is defined by means of a premetric. Thanks to this mathematical structure that tries to capture the problematic of agreements and modifications of regulations, some currently issues related to game theory or law are now reduced to mathematical optimization problems.Show more Publication Open Access Semiorders and continuous Scott–Suppes representations. Debreu’s Open Gap Lemma with a threshold(Elsevier, 2023) Estevan Muguerza, Asier; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Research in Business and Economics - INARBE; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate Publikoa, JIUPNA19-2022Show more The problem of finding a utility function for a semiorder has been studied since 1956, when the notion of semiorder was introduced by Luce. But few results on continuity and no result like Debreu’s Open Gap Lemma, but for semiorders, was found. In the present paper, we characterize semiorders that accept a continuous representation (in the sense of Scott–Suppes). Two weaker theorems are also proved, which provide a programmable approach to Open Gap Lemma, yield a Debreu’s Lemma for semiorders, and enable us to remove the open-closed and closed-open gaps of a set of reals while keeping the threshold.Show more Publication Open Access On fixed point theory in partially ordered sets and an application to asymptotic complexity of algorithms(Springer, 2019) Estevan Muguerza, Asier; Miñana, Juan José; Valero, Óscar; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Estadística, Informática y MatemáticasShow more The celebrated Kleene fixed point theorem is crucial in the mathematical modelling of recursive specifications in Denotational Semantics. In this paper we discuss whether the hypothesis of the aforementioned result can be weakened. An affirmative answer to the aforesaid inquiry is provided so that a characterization of those properties that a self-mapping must satisfy in order to guarantee that its set of fixed points is non-empty when no notion of completeness are assumed to be satisfied by the partially ordered set. Moreover, the case in which the partially ordered set is coming from a quasi-metric space is treated in depth. Finally, an application of the exposed theory is obtained. Concretely, a mathematical method to discuss the asymptotic complexity of those algorithms whose running time of computing fulfills a recurrence equation is presented. Moreover, the aforesaid method retrieves the fixed point based methods that appear in the literature for asymptotic complexity analysis of algorithms. However, our new method improves the aforesaid methods because it imposes fewer requirements than those that have been assumed in the literature and, in addition, it allows to state simultaneously upper and lower asymptotic bounds for the running time computing.Show more Publication Open Access Partial representations of orderings(World Scientific, 2018) Bosi, Gianni; Estevan Muguerza, Asier; Zuanon, Magali; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta MatematikaShow more In the present paper a new concept of representability is introduced, which can be applied to not total and also to intransitive relations (semiorders in particular). This idea tries to represent the orderings in the simplest manner, avoiding any unnecessary information. For this purpose, the new concept of representability is developed by means of partial functions, so that other common definitions of representability (i.e. (Richter-Peleg) multi-utility, Scott-Suppes representability, … ) are now particular cases in which the partial functions are actually functions. The paper also presents a collection of examples and propositions showing the advantages of this kind of representations, particularly in the case of partial orders and semiorders, as well as some results showing the connections between distinct kinds of representations.Show more Publication Open Access Topologies for semicontinuous Richter–Peleg multi-utilities(Springer, 2020) Bosi, Gianni; Estevan Muguerza, Asier; Raventós Pujol, Armajac; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Institute for Advanced Research in Business and Economics - INARBE; Estadística, Informática y MatemáticasShow more The present paper gives a topological solution to representability problems related to multi-utility, in the field of Decision Theory. Necessary and sufficient topologies for the existence of a semicontinuous and finite Richter–Peleg multi-utility for a preorder are studied. It is well known that, given a preorder on a topological space, if there is a lower (upper) semicontinuous Richter–Peleg multi-utility, then the topology of the space must be finer than the Upper (resp. Lower) topology. However, this condition fails to be sufficient. Instead of search for properties that must be satisfied by the preorder, we study finer topologies which are necessary or/and sufficient for the existence of semicontinuous representations. We prove that Scott topology must be contained in the topology of the space in case there exists a finite lower semicontinuous Richter–Peleg multi-utility. However, the existence of this representation cannot be guaranteed. A sufficient condition is given by means of Alexandroff’s topology, for that, we prove that more order implies less Alexandroff’s topology, as well as the converse. Finally, the paper is implemented with a topological study of the maximal elements.Show more Publication Open Access Continuous representations of interval orders by means of two continuous functions(Springer, 2020) Bosi, Gianni; Estevan Muguerza, Asier; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2Show more In this paper, we provide a characterization of the existence of a representation of an interval order on a topological space in the general case by means of a pair of continuous functions, when neither the functions nor the topological space are required to satisfy any particular assumptions. Such a characterization is based on a suitable continuity assumption of the binary relation, called weak continuity. In this way, we generalize all the previous results on the continuous representability of interval orders, and also of total preorders, as particular cases.Show more Publication Open Access Searching for a Debreu’s open gap lemma for semiorders(Springer, 2020) Estevan Muguerza, Asier; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Estadística, Informática y MatemáticasShow more In 1956 R. D. Luce introduced the notion of a semiorder to deal with indifference relations in the representation of a preference. During several years the problem of finding a utility function was studied until a representability characterization was found. However, there was almost no results on the continuity of the representation. A similar result to Debreu’s Lemma, but for semiorders was never achieved. In the present paper we propose a characterization for the existence of a continuous representation (in the sense of Scott-Suppes) for bounded semiorders. As a matter of fact, the weaker but more manageable concept of ε-continuity is properly introduced for semiorders. As a consequence of this study, a version of the Debreu’s Open Gap Lemma is presented (but now for the case of semiorders) just as a conjecture, which would allow to remove the open-closed and closed-open gaps of a subset S ⊆ R, but now keeping the constant threshold, so that x + 1 < y if and only if g(x) + 1 < g(y) (x, y ∈ S).Show more Publication Open Access Quasi-metrics for possibility results: intergenerational preferences and continuity(MDPI, 2023) Estevan Muguerza, Asier; Maura, Roberto; Valero, Óscar; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Research in Business and Economics - INARBE; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate Publikoa JIUPNA19-2022Show more In this paper, we provide the counterparts of a few celebrated impossibility theorems for continuous social intergenerational preferences according to P. Diamond, L.G. Svensson and T. Sakai. In particular, we give a topology that must be refined for continuous preferences to satisfy anonymity and strong monotonicity. Furthermore, we suggest quasi-pseudo-metrics as an appropriate quantitative tool for reconciling topology and social intergenerational preferences. Thus, we develop a metric-type method which is able to guarantee the possibility counterparts of the aforesaid impossibility theorems and, in addition, it is able to give numerical quantifications of the improvement of welfare. Finally, a refinement of the previous method is presented in such a way that metrics are involved.Show more
