Solving Discrete Multiple Criteria Problems by Using Visual Interaction

  • Pekka Korhonen
Part of the Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems book series (LNE, volume 273)


In this paper we describe the principles and the use of a new interactive method for solving discrete deterministic multiple criteria problems. A more detailed description of the method is found in Korhonen (1986).
