For The strategies I am trying to implement I would like to use mathematical functions of ranks rahter than ranks directly. Example:

Instead of ranking weight1*Rank1 + weight2*Rank2

I might rank

ln(rank1) + ln(rank2),

which would be equivalent to ranking


This seems to make more sense statistically in many situations.

Thanks, Steve
