Here are some typical inputs to IEVS 2.02 [note, the program will ask you questions which you answer; in the below only the answers are shown] --- To produce a Yee-type picture of IRV for a 4-candidate election with the candidates located at the 4 corners of the picture-square [runtime: about 10 min on an apple G5 "power PC," circa 2003 vintage; output file: "irvSquare.bmp"] 99658767 2 5 irvSquare 4 1 0 0 199 0 199 199 0 199 256 196 Some voting methods take longer than others (depends on the method and on the candidates' locations). For example if you substitute 5 --> 3 and irvSquare --> plurSquare then the plurality method is run, which in this case requires 105 seconds. [With further speedups in IEVS 2.04, plurality falls to 75 sec; Coombs takes 64 sec.] And 4 --> 14 and irvSquare --> bucklinSquare runs Bucklin voting, which takes 10 min. --- To produce a Yee-type picture of IRV for a 14-candidate election with the candidates located randomly within a 150x150 centered subsquare of the 200x200 picture [IEVS 2.02 runtime: about 70 min; output file: "irv666.bmp"] 666 2 5 irv666 14 2 150 256 70 --- To produce a Yee-type picture of the Voronoi diagram for the same 14-candidates [runtime: a few seconds; output file: "voronoi666.bmp"] 666 2 0 voronoi666 14 2 150 256 70 --- To produce a Yee-type picture of the "Furthest Point Voronoi diagram" for the same 14-candidates [runtime: a few seconds, output file: "worst666.bmp"] 666 2 1 worst666 14 2 150 256 70 --- Yee-type picture of 7 points forming a regular hexagon & center (finds Voronoi diagram): 99658767 2 0 vorHex7 7 1 100 180 169 140 169 60 100 20 31 60 31 140 100 100 256 196 --- Yee-type picture of 7 points forming a regular hexagon & center (finds BramsSanver diagram, which turns out to be the same as the Voronoi diagram): 99658767 2 39 bramssanverHex7 7 1 100 180 169 140 169 60 100 20 31 60 31 140 100 100 256 50 --- Yee-type picture of 6 points forming a regular hexagon (finds BramsSanver diagram which again in this case is the same as the Voronoi diagram): 99658767 2 39 bramssanverHex6 6 1 100 180 169 140 169 60 100 20 31 60 31 140 256 50 -- Yee-type picture of 5 points forming a regular pentagon with center 100,100 (irv): 99658767 2 5 irvPent5 5 1 100 180 176 125 147 35 53 35 24 125 256 180 -- Yee-type picture of 10 random but specified points 80411 2 5 irv10E 10 1 47 24 96 110 117 111 133 48 86 27 92 116 115 102 167 31 26 123 102 96 1024 141 -- Yee-type picture of 10 random but specified points 874774 2 5 irv10C 10 1 34 96 54 68 160 20 24 105 114 119 86 169 159 28 40 93 30 171 117 109 1024 100 -- Squeeze out 8754774 2 5 irvSqueezeC 3 1 14 40 98 8 82 10 256 100 -- IRV weird I 8754774 2 5 irvWeird1C 4 1 24 56 170 140 78 56 194 28 256 100 -- IRV weird II 8754774 2 5 irvWeird2C 4 1 48 46 38 124 8 128 170 110 256 100 -- IRV weird III 8754774 2 5 irvWeird3C 4 1 80 114 32 108 10 124 182 140 256 100 -- IRV weird IV 8754774 2 5 irvWeird4C 3 1 108 94 154 128 26 20 256 100
