Let "descending pairwise" (DP) be the spanning tree-like algorithm at
the basis of Ranked Pairs.

Then the original interpretation of the names, as far as I know, is:

Ranked Pairs is DP (margins).
MAM is DP (wv) with a random voter hierarchy tiebreak.

Sometimes, "Ranked Pairs" is used for DP in general. (I've done that,
myself, at times.)
