             "weight.and.slop", "margin.weight",
             "taint"))

Arguments

name

name of function desired

Details

The functions are no weighting, weighted by size of precint, weight by size, after a slop of 2 votes has been taken off, and weighing for pairwise margin tests, and finally, the taint weight function that takes maximum error in precincts and gives a ratio of actual error to maximum error.

Value

A two-element list of two functions, the second being the inverse of the first. All the functions have three parameters, x, b\_m, and M, which are the things to weight, the bound on votes (or maximum error in precincts), and the (smallest) margin.
