A Combined Approach to Reducing the Pareto Set Using Linear or Multiplicative Scalarization

  • V. D. Noghin


In this paper, the multicriteria choice problem, including the decision maker’s (DM) binary preference relation, is considered. Two combined two-stage approaches are proposed. According to these approaches, first, we have to reveal some information on the DM’s preference relation and then apply scalarization methods based on linear or multiplicative functions. The justification of both the combined two-stage approaches is given.
