Who are the real top scorers: Algorithmically resorting a top scorer list by a limited set of preference assumptions
This article presents an algorithm, which by taking both goals scoredas well as matches played into account, is meant to provide “more sensible” topscorer lists in football. The algorithm computes Upper Hulls recursively in order toprovide a new and improved list. The complexity of the algorithm is reasonable, andshould imply practically feasible execution on a modern computer. The proposedalgorithm may also be an interesting alternative to academic scholar ranking. Ithas interesting properties for instance compared to the h-index.
