Fuzzy Multicriteria Decision-Making: Models, Algorithms andApplications addresses theoretical and practical gaps inconsidering uncertainty and multicriteria factors encountered inthe design, planning, and control of complex systems. Including allprerequisite knowledge and augmenting some parts with astep-by-step explanation of more advanced concepts, the authorsprovide a systematic and comprehensive presentation of theconcepts, design methodology, and detailed algorithms. These aresupported by many numeric illustrations and a number of applicationscenarios to motivate the reader and make some abstract conceptsmore tangible.

Fuzzy Multicriteria Decision-Making: Models, Algorithms andApplications will appeal to a wide audience of researchers andpractitioners in disciplines where decision-making is paramount,including various branches of engineering, operations research,economics and management; it will also be of interest to graduatestudents and senior undergraduate students in courses such asdecision making, management, risk management, operations research,numerical methods, and knowledge-based systems.
