A characterization of value efficiency.

Alfonso Mateos, Sixto Ríos-Insua (1996)

Extracta Mathematicae

An important issue in multi-attribute decision making consists of identifying the set of efficient solutions. The importance of this set is that the decision maker (DM) can restrict his attention to it, discarding all other solutions, because a nonefficient solution can never be optimal. Several methods have been developed to aid a DM in generating all or representative subsets of efficient solutions, [1] and [4], or to approximate it [7]. However most of these methods may be hard to apply to nonlinear...

A class of extensions of Restricted (s,t)-Wythoff’s game

Sanyang Liu, Haiyan Li (2017)

Open Mathematics

Restricted (s, t)-Wythoff’s game, introduced by Liu et al. in 2014, is an impartial combinatorial game. We define and solve a class of games obtained from Restricted (s, t)-Wythoff’s game by adjoining to it some subsets of its P-positions as additional moves. The results show that under certain conditions they are equivalent to one case in which only one P-position is adjoined as an additional move. Furthermore, two winning strategies of exponential and polynomial are provided for the games.

A classical decision theoretic perspective on worst-case analysis

Moshe Sniedovich (2011)

Applications of Mathematics

We examine worst-case analysis from the standpoint of classical Decision Theory. We elucidate how this analysis is expressed in the framework of Wald's famous Maximin paradigm for decision-making under strict uncertainty. We illustrate the subtlety required in modeling this paradigm by showing that information-gap's robustness model is in fact a Maximin model in disguise.

A comparative study of microaggregation methods.

Josep Maria Mateo Sanz, Josep Domingo Ferrer (1998)


Microaggregation is a statistical disclosure control technique for microdata. Raw microdata (i.e. individual records) are grouped into small aggregates prior to publication. Each aggregate should contain at least k records to prevent disclosure of individual information. Fixed-size microaggregation consists of taking fixed-size microaggregates (size k). Data-oriented microaggregation (with variable group size) was introduced recently. Regardless of the group size, microaggregations on a multidimensional...
