Pairwise Comparison Matrix With Fuzzy Elements (Jaroslav Ramík, Silesian University in Opava, Czech Republic)

Prof. RNDr. Jaroslav Ramík, CSc. graduated in applied mathematics from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic). He is the author of numerous monographs, books, papers and research works in optimization including fuzzy mathematical programming, multi-criteria decision making, control and scheduling. Since 1990 he is a professor and head of the Department of Mathematical Methods in Economics at the Silesian University Opava, School of Business Administration in Karviná. He is the author of 7 books in English and more than 50 papers listed in WoS with more than 600 citations. He has been a project leader of 5 research projects of the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic. He is also active in the Czech Society for Operations Research where he served as a former president of the Society in two time periods.

Keynote II, September 10, 2014, 10:00-10:45, room 2.001

Pareto efficient weights from pairwise comparison matrices and norm-induced distances (Michele Fedrizzi, University of Trento, Italy)

Prof. Michele Fedrizzi is an associate professor of Mathematical Methods for Economics at the University of Trento. He studied Mathematics at the University of Bologna and, in the past years, he worked on fuzzy sets, neural networks and their application in Economics. His actual research interests are on preference modelling, pairwise comparisons, inconsistency evaluation, incomplete preference relations, Analytic Hierarchy Process, consensual dynamics models in group decisions. The main achievements are on: (1) transformations between multiplicative and additive representation of valued preference relations, (2) axiomatic characterization of inconsistency indices, (3) the use of norm–based distances in inconsistency evaluation and in obtaining the weight vector from a pairwise comparison matrix. His research cooperation includes: Wroclaw University of Economics, Berkeley University, Aalto University, Portsmouth University, Palacký University in Olomouc.
