Abstract

This paper shows that signal restoration methodology is appropriate for

for this is provided by proving the existence of finite improvement paths in object allocation

to a Nash equilibrium. Because a finite improvement path is made up of a sequence

initial condition can be treated like the realisation of a noise process. This underpins

illustration is provided through an application of maximum entropy signal restoration

to the Schelling model of segregation.
