Statistical Tests for Verification of Estimate of the Preference Relation Resulting from Pairwise Comparisons
- 9 Downloads
The paper presents tests for verification of estimates of the preference relation, obtained of the basis of multiple independent pairwise comparisons with random errors. The comparisons are assumed in binary form, while the estimate is obtained with the use of the idea of nearest adjoining order (NAO). Some of these tests are non-parametric, i.e. they do not require any parameters of distribution of comparison errors; remaining tests are based on exact or limiting distributions. Estimates verified by the tests are highly reliable and does not require high computational cost.
