partial differential equation
Summary In this article, I analyze a class of contest success functions (CSFs) that satisfy Luce's Choice Axiom. I show that the functional forms of these CSFs can be fully identified if they are characterized by a partial differential equation (PDE), which has several intuitive economic interpretations. This POE approach provides foundations for popular CSFs and their generalizations.
