Non-adaptability measures with the branching property

C. Bertoluzza, V. Doldi, J. Jiménez, S. Montes.

In this paper we will deal with the measure of non-adaptability between partitions. This concept was especially defined in order to compare partitions in the context of pseudo-questionnaires, even though it can be used in any general context where the comparison of two partitions is required. In particular, we will characterize the family of nonadaptability measures which satisfy the branching property. A procedure to construct all the measures in this class will be given and some equivalent definitions presented.
