Q1. What contributions have the authors mentioned in the paper "A cardinal dissensus measure based on the mahalanobis distance" ?
In this paper the authors address the problem of measuring the degree of consensus/dissensus in a context where experts or agents express their opinions on alternatives or issues by means of cardinal evaluations. To this end the authors propose a new class of distance-based consensus model, the family of the Mahalanobis dissensus measures for profiles of cardinal values. Finally, an application over a real empirical example is presented and discussed.
