    oldabstract = {In this paper we show that an important class of geometric objects -- bounded convex polytopes -- are automatically created in group decision making on the distribution of scare resources. We provide theoretical analysis and empirical evidence on three key findings: (1) polytopic decision spaces are implicit in a decision-making group's heterogeneous array of initial opinions on how to distribute a finite resource, and this implicit decision space constrains the subsequent evolution of opinions on resource distributions, (2) a network science model of iterated averaging of multidimensional opinions is predictive of the groups' settled opinions, and (3) a single influence network is sufficient to predict the evolution of groups' multidimensional opinions. These three findings establish a natural meshing of automatic polytopic decision spaces, weighted averaging models, and group decision making on resource allocation problems. A key implication of these findings is that they together provide a quantitative mechanistic explanation for how a group confronted with an uncertain multi-objective decision making problem arrives at a satisficing solution.},
    significancestatement={When mathematical structure appears in nature, we are led to wonder why it should be so, and what are its implications. This paper points to and investigates the implications of the implicit polytopic decision space that is automatically generated by a decision making group’s heterogeneous array of initial opinions on how to distribute a finite resource. The existence of this natural mathematical structure brings group-consensus bases of settling upon a resource allocation distribution close to the mathematical architecture of an optimization problem. The convex hull generated by a group’s initial opinion array can be described by a system of linear inequalities, corresponding to the convex hull’s facets. This system of inequalities determines the decision space of an optimization problem.}
