Abstract
Multicriteria correlation preference information (MCCPI) refers to a special type of 2-dimensional explicit information: the importance and interaction preferences regarding multiple dependent decision criteria. A few identification models have been established and implemented to transform the MCCPI into the most satisfactory 2-additive capacity. However, as one of the most commonly accepted particular type of capacity, 2-additive capacity only takes into account 2-order interactions and ignores the higher order interactions, which is not always reasonable in a real decision-making environment. In this paper, we generalize those identification models into ordinary capacity cases to freely represent the complicated situations of higher order interactions among multiple decision criteria. Furthermore, a MCCPI-based comprehensive decision aid algorithm is proposed to represent various kinds of dominance relationships of all decision alternatives as well as other useful decision aiding information. An illustrative example is adopted to show the proposed MCCPI-based capacity identification method and decision aid algorithm.

Abstract Nonadditivity is an essential property of the capacities defined on the sets of decision criteria. Nonadditivity extends the additivity of traditional probability measures and enables capacities to flexibly represent the interaction phenomenon between the decision criteria. We propose the nonadditivity index to quantify the degree and kind of nonadditivity of a capacity, discuss some properties of this index, and present some tools to help decision makers determine the nonadditivity ind...

Abstract Inspired by the Grabisch idea of k -additive measures, we introduce and study k -additive aggregation functions. The Owen multilinear extension of a k -additive capacity is shown to be a particular k -additive aggregation function. We clarify the relation between k -additive aggregation functions and polynomials with degree not exceeding k . We also describe all basic 2-additive n -dimensional aggregation functions whose convex closure forms the class of all 2-additive n -dimensional ag...

In this paper we deal with an urban and territorial planning problem by applying the Non Additive Robust Ordinal Regression (NAROR). NAROR is a recent extension of the Robust Ordinal Regression family of Multiple Criteria Decision Aiding methods to the Choquet integral preference model which permits to represent interaction between considered criteria through the use of a set of non-additive weights called capacity or fuzzy measure. The use of NAROR permits the Decision Maker (DM) to give prefer...

In the literature (40), the authors proposed the sum interaction index and discussed its basic mathematical properties. And by some comparison analyses, the authors demonstrated that the sum interaction index can be taken as an alternative of the probabilistic interaction index to measure the interaction phenomenon of the multiple decision criteria. In this paper, we further investigate the properties of the sum interaction index with respect to some particular families of monotone measures, suc...

We consider multiple criteria decision aiding in the case of interaction between criteria. In this case the usual weighted sum cannot be used to aggregate evaluations on different criteria and other value functions with a more complex formulation have to be considered. The Choquet integral is the most used technique and also the most widespread in the literature. However, the application of the Choquet integral presents two main problems being the necessity to determine the capacity, which is th...

The essential role of the particular families of capacities and the capacity identification methods is to help the decision maker to deal with the exponential complexity inherent in the construction process of the capacity. The 2-additive capacities appear to be the most popular among the particular families of capacities since they permit to model interactions between criteria while preserving simplicity. Besides the preference with respect to the decision criteria, most of the capacity identif...

The capacity is a powerful tool with exponential coefficients to represent the interaction phenomenon among decision criteria, but its random generation becomes a tough issue for dealing with the monotonicity with all inclusion subsets as well as the complex constraints of decision preference. In this paper, we adopt a kind of explicit interaction index, the nonadditivity index, to construct two types of quasi-random generation methods of capacity under a given decision interaction preference. C...

Abstract Nonmodularity is a more general concept than nonadditivity which provides a more inclusive reflection of the relationship between subsets of criteria in multicriteria decision making. In this paper, we construct the nonmodularity index to describe the kind and intensity of interaction within a subset of criteria associated with the nonmodularity, and introduce the total nonmodularity and nonadditivity (amount) index to reflect the interactions within a capacity as a whole. We prove some...

The purpose of this paper is to enrich the decision preference information inconsistency check and adjustment method in the context of capacity-based multiple criteria decision making. We first show that almost all the preference information of a decision maker can be represented as a collection of linear constraints. By introducing the positive and negative deviations, we construct the the multiple goal linear programming (MGLP)-based inconsistency recognition model to find out the redundant an...

Matrix algebra is an efficient way to represent the relationship between different concepts in the multiple criteria decision analysis theory. The main purpose of this paper is to provide a compact and systematic representation of the capacities and nonlinear integrals based decision theory and models from the perspective of matrices or vectors. We first investigate the forms and properties of the matrix representation of some equivalent transformations of capacities and introduce some new types...
