Mathematical Principles of Decision Making

Author(s): Thomas Saaty
In this book Thomas Saaty summarizes his Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) theory developed over the past 40 years for measuring intangible factors through paired comparisons using judgments from which priorities are derived that give the relative dominance of these factors. The important concepts...

Measuring in Weighted Environments

Author(s): Claudio Garuti
The group's decision is usually understood to be the reduction of different individual preferences among objects in a given set to a single collective preference or group preference. In recent years, the researchers have tended to concentrate on the analysis of decisions that are ""re...

Non Linear Mathematics Vol. I

Author(s): Thomas Saaty, Joseph Bram
We are surrounded and deeply involved, in the natural world, with non- linear events which are not necessarily mathematical, the authors write. For example . . . the nonlinear problem of pedalling a bicycle up and down a hillside. On a grand scale . . . the struggle for existence between two spec...
