''Whitney topology and spaces of preference relations''
( 2005, Vol. 3 No.4 )
 
 
The strong Whitney topology on the sets of maps of smooth manifolds induces a topology on the set of preferences in euclidean space. We prove that the obtained space is not connected which implies that there is no continuous social choice function defined on a finite power of this space. We also show that the obtained space is not normal.
