The CRC Press Series in Operations Research encompasses books that contribute to the methodology of Operations Research and applying advanced analytical methods to help make better decisions.
The scope of the series is wide, including innovative applications of Operations Research which describe novel ways to solve real-world problems, with examples drawn from industrial, computing, engineering, and business applications. The series explores the latest developments in Theory and Methodology, and presents original research results contributing to the methodology of Operations Research, and to its theoretical foundations.
Featuring a broad range of reference works, textbooks and handbooks, the books in this Series will appeal not only to researchers, practitioners and students in the mathematical community, but also to engineers, physicists, and computer scientists. The inclusion of real examples and applications is highly encouraged in all of our books.
Understanding the Analytic Hierarchy Process
Handbook of the Shapley Value
By Konrad Kulakowski
November 11, 2020
One of the best-known methods of multi-criteria decision-making is the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). This method provides a convenient and versatile framework for modeling multi-criteria decision problems, evaluating alternatives, and deriving final priorities. Rather than imposing a "correct" ...
