Seminar title: Inequality, networks and posets

The seminar is a summary of my research activities, in particular the works I’ve realized in the last three years. My research interests are about inequality, network and posets. The first argument is about a model for income distributions whose parameters are strictly related to the scale and the inequality and how to estimate its parameters accordingly to the expectation and an inequality index. The second topic is networks. The most recent article about networks proposes a scoring method of tennis players based on the eigen-centrality. These scores have been used as predictors of winning players in place of the ELO scores. The seminar ends with partially ordered sets (posets). They are useful as approach to describe wellbeing through ordinal variables. Wellbeing has a large complexity and may require to be divided into different domains. Starting from the partial rankings of each domain, the last part of the seminar is about an algorithm proposed for the reduction of such complexity.
