Checking bivariate first order dominance

Troels Martin Range () and Lars Peter Østerdal ()

Abstract: We consider the problem of checking first order dominance for finite bivariate distributions. We observe that this can be formulated as a special bipartite network problem related to the classical transportation problem. We exploit this observation to develop a new characterization of first order dominance and fast dominance-checking algorithms.

Keywords: Multidimensional first order dominance; usual stochastic order; characterization; network problem; checking algorithm; (follow links to similar papers)
