Principles of reference-aided decision making

  • V. O. Groppen
Modeling of Behavior and Intelligence


A unified approach to decision making with extremal many-criteria models, expert estimates, and voting is developed on the basis of reference and distance concepts and taxonomy methods. It involves the solution of many-criteria problems with the Pareto optimum. Examples demonstrating the effectiveness and universality of the approach are given.
