Mathematical methods of operations research by Thomas L Saaty( Book )

36 editions published between 1959 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique work represents the first graduate-level text devoted to mathematical methods of operations research. Now a classic in the field, it covers the principal mathematical methods and unites previously scattered theoretical and illustrative literature. Among its outstanding features: Concise history and overview of operations-research methods ; Excellent exposition of mathematical foundations underlying all classical operations-research procedures ; Clear, straightforward writing style. After an initial orientation to the historical, scientific and mathematical aspects of operations research, Dr. Saaty presents examples and ideas on classical methods of forming models. He then goes on to discuss optimization, game theory, applications of probability, and queueing theory, among other important topics. Carefully selected exercises illustrate important and useful ideas. Unlike many texts in the field which assume mathematical prerequisites or present the necessary material in a cursory fashion, Professor Saaty's book offers full treatment of the mathematical fundamentals involved. In addition, the book serves as a valuable source of references to early literature on operations research, especially the unpublished literature of research notes, memoranda and so forth. For this latest edition, Dr. Saaty has written a new preface updating the status of operations research since the book's original publication and included a new chapter (13), which offers a modern approach to multicriteria decision making. In sum, Mathematical Methods of Operations Research is an ideal resource for the student who wishes to investigate the basic mathematics of operations research (e.g., methods of proof, logical notions, elementary mathematical modeling concepts, and more), as well as a valuable reference for the expert in search of sources and other indications of early efforts. -- from back cover

Decision making for leaders : the analytical hierarchy process for decisions in a complex world by Thomas L Saaty( Book )

61 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses the issue of how to structure a complex situatioin, identify its criteria and other factors whether intangible or concrete, measure the interactions among them in a simple way, and synthesize all the information to obtain priorities. The priorities can then be used in a fenefit/cost setting to develop portfolios of activities, one of the major concerns of organizations today. --From the Publisher

The logic of priorities : applications in business, energy, health, and transportation by Thomas L Saaty( Book )

22 editions published between 1981 and 1991 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents applications of the Analytic Hierarchy Process developed by Thomas L. Saaty to deal with unstructured decision problems, together with case histories developed by him and in collaboration with others in areas of current societal concern. Its purpose is to provide the reader with examples of how to deal with unstructured problems, particularly ones involving socio economic and political issues with qualitative and intangible factors. These examples show how to use judgment and experience to analyze a com plex decision problem by combining its qualitative and quantitative aspects in a single framework and generating a set of priorities for alternative courses of action. The process has inherent flexibilities in structuring a problem and in taking diverse judgments from people, whether singly, in a group working together, or by questionnaire. Decisionmakers will profit from this approach. It makes accessible to them a framework for understanding the complexity of the system they are in as it impinges on the surrounding environment. To deal with complexity, we must first understand it. Systems thinking is necessary if all the important factors are to be considered. Complex systems problems can challenge and tax our logical capability to fully understand their causes and the consequences of any action we may take to solve them. Neverthe less, in time their effects on us tend to become better known than their causes

Decision making with the analytic network process : economic, political, social and technological applications with benefits, opportunities, costs and risks by Thomas L Saaty( Book )

37 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Analytic Network Process (ANP) developed by Thomas Saaty in his work on multicriteria decision making applies network structures with dependence and feedback to complex decision making. This book is a selection of applications of ANP to economic, social and political decisions, and also to technological design. The chapters comprise contributions of scholars, consultants and people concerned about the outcome of certain important decisions who applied the Analytic Network Process to determine the best outcome for each decision from among several potential outcomes. The ANP is a methodological tool that is helpful to organize knowledge and thinking, elicit judgments registered in both in memory and in feelings, quantify the judgments and derive priorities from them, and finally synthesize these diverse priorities into a single mathematically and logically justifiable overall outcome. In the process of deriving this outcome, the ANP also allows for the representation and synthesis of diverse opinions in the midst of discussion and debate. The ANP offers economists a considerably different approach for dealing with economic problems than the usual quantitative models used. The ANP approach is based on absolute scales used to represent pairwise comparison judgments in the context of dominance with respect to a property shared by the homogeneous elements being compared. How much or how many times more does A dominate B with respect to property P? Actually people are able to answer this question by using words to indicate intensity of dominance that all of us are equipped biologically to do all the time (equal, moderate, strong, very strong, and extreme) whose conversion to numbers, validation and extension to inhomogeneous elements form the foundation of the AHP/ANP. Numerous applications of the ANP have been made to economic problems, among which prediction of the turn-around dates for the US economy in the early 1990's and again in 2001 whose accuracy and validity were both confirmed later in the news. They were based on the process of comparisons of mostly intangible factors rather than on financial, employment and other data and statistics."--Publisher's website
Analytical planning : the organization of systems by Thomas L Saaty( Book )

17 editions published between 1985 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analytical Planning: The Organization of Systems deals with systems and planning and suggests a methodological tool for integrating the two. This book presents the basic ideas behind complexity, systems, hierarchies, and prioritization and describes planning as a unique form of decision making with illustrations of some prominent philosophical and methodological approaches. It highlights some shortcomings of traditional approaches to planning and shows how these can be addressed by the systems approach
Models, methods, concepts & applications of the analytic hierarchy process by Thomas L Saaty( Book )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is a prominent and powerful tool for making decisions in situations involving multiple objectives. Models, Methods, Concepts and Applications of the Analytic Hierarchy Process, 2nd Edition applies the AHP in order to solve problems focused on the following three themes: economics, the social sciences, and the linking of measurement with human values. For economists, the AHP offers a substantially different approach to dealing with economic problems through ratio scales. Psychologists and political scientists can use the methodology to quantify and derive measurements for intangibles. Meanwhile researchers in the physical and engineering sciences can apply the AHP methods to help resolve the conflicts between hard measurement data and human values. Throughout the book, each of these topics is explored utilizing real life models and examples, relevant to problems in todays society. This new edition has been updated and includes five new chapters that includes discussions of the following: The eigenvector and why it is necessary. A summary of ongoing research in the Middle East that brings together Israeli and Palestinian scholars to develop concessions from both parties. A look at the Medicare Crisis and how AHP can be used to understand the problems and help develop ideas to solve them
