The important issue of how to overcome rigidness, inadequacy and human inconsistency regarding conventional assumptions on preferences in decision making (for example, regarding yes/no crispness or transitivity) is discussed by well-known experts in this volume. In the introductory articles, analyses of those conventional assumptions are given and the need for reconsiderations and changes as to preference-related aspects is advocated. The following contributions are mainly concerned with issues related to valued (including fuzzy) preference relations, such as analysis of their properties and their use in various decision making and choice problems and in group decision making.
Contents: Normative Theories of Decision Making Under Risk and Under Uncertainty; Partial Structures of Preference; A Generalisation of Probabilistic Consistency: Linearity Conditions for Valued Preference Relations; Fuzzy Preference Relations in Group Decision Making; aP,Q,Iu - Preference Structures; Identifying Noninferior Decision Alternatives Based on Fuzzy Binary Relations; Effective Convolutions of Vector Preference Relations in Decision Making Problems; Choice Functions Associated with Fuzzy Preference Relations; Fuzzy Possibility Graphs and Their Application to Ranking Fuzzy Numbers; On Measuring Consensus in the Setting of Fuzzy Preference Relations; Assumptions of Individual Preferences in the Theory of Voting Procedures.
