五、讲座摘要

The tournament designs that are used for numerous professional and amateur sports events all over the world suffer from a number of well documented deficiencies. These deficiencies typically reduce the fairness, excitement value, profitability, and credibility of those tournaments. We describe a new design that substantially reduces these problems. We validate our design using both data from professional sports tournaments and an extensive sensitivity analysis with simulated data.
