Abstract

We describe a program for obtaining estimates of the rank order of objects in a paired comparison experiment. The program uses Remage and Thompson's dynamic programming algorithm [3] to obtain that ranking which maximizes the likelihood function with the restriction of weak stochastic transitivity.
