Abstract

This paper studies the relationship between multidistances and valued m-ary adjacency relations in the framework of consensus evaluation in Social Network Analysis, SNA. We show that m-ary adjacency relations can be modelled on the basis of OWA-based multidistances and some consensus related optimization problems on m-ary adjacency relations are equivalent to correspondent multidistance minimization problems. Finally, some characteristics of a new multidistance are discussed.
