  1. 21. Fast local optimization in decision analytic software

    University dissertation from Sundsvall : Mittuniversitetet

    Author : Xiasong Ding; Love Ekenberg; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bilinear programming; decision analysis; optimization; linear progamming; decision support systems; iterative method; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : In decision analysis, significant recognition has been given to the fact that requiring numerically precise information seems unrealistic for real-life decision situations, Despite the emergence of many modern apporaches, which attempt to handle imprecise estimates, concentration has focused more on representation and less on evaluation. Methods such as the DELTA method  challenged this issue by its evaluation framework that can accommodate both precision an imprecision, and thus pushes forward the disign of advanced dicision analysis systems.
