About this book

This book examines relationships between pairwise comparisons matrices. It first provides an overview of the latest theories of pairwise comparisons in decision making, discussing the pairwise comparison matrix, a fundamental tool for further investigation, as a deterministic matrix with given elements. Subsequent chapters then investigate these matrices under uncertainty, as a matrix with vague elements (fuzzy and/or intuitionistic fuzzy ones), and also as random elements. The second part of the book describes the application of the theoretical results in the three most popular multicriteria decision-making methods: the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), PROMETHEE and TOPSIS. This book appeals to scholars in areas such as decision theory, operations research, optimization theory, algebra, interval analysis and fuzzy sets.
