Author: Constantin Zopounidis Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/01/2013

During the last decades the globalisation of financial markets, the intensifying competition as well as the rapid economic, social and technological changes, have led to an increasing uncertainty and instability in the financial and business environments.

Multiple Criteria Decision Aiding

Multiple Criteria Decision Aiding

Author: Constantin Zopounidis, Michael Doumpos, Nikolaos F Matsatsinis, Evangelos Grigoroudis Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 21/02/2012

The changes in the technological and business environment have complicated the nature of the decision-making process in real-world problems, thus motivating the development of new operations research (OR) methodologies. The traditional OR context is usually based on a single objective approach using profit (cost) maximisation (minimisation) criteria. However, it is now widely acknowledged that such an approach overlooks additional factors which are also highly relevant in a decision-making context. This book presents the recent advances to the theory of multicriteria analysis, covering all its major aspects in a unique edited volume.
