Poisson Approval studies the Poisson Game of Approval Voting.


  • Implement only the case of 3 candidates.
  • Deal with ordinal or cardinal profiles.
  • Compute the asymptotic developments of the probability of pivot events when the number of players tends to infinity.
  • Compute the best response to a given tau-vector.
  • Explore automatically a grid of ordinal profiles or a grid of tau-vectors.
  • Perform Monte-Carlo experiments on profiles or tau-vectors.
  • Search an equilibrium by iterated voting or fictitious play.
  • In addition to Approval, implement Plurality and Anti-plurality as Poisson games.
  • Perform numeric or symbolic computation.
