— Resource allocation problems are concerned with the allocation of limited resources among competing activities so as to achieve the best overall performances of the system but providing fair treatment of all the competitors. Telecommu-nication networks are facing the increasing demand for Inter-net services. Therefore, a problem of network dimensioning(More)
The problem of averaging outcomes under several scenarios to form overall objective functions is of considerable importance in decision support under uncertainty. The so-called Weighted OWA (WOWA) aggregation offers a well-suited approach to this problem. The WOWA aggregation, similar to the classical ordered weighted averaging (OWA), uses the preferential(More)
The approach called the Lexicographic Min-Max (LMM) optimization depends on searching for solutions minimal according to the lex-max order on a multidimensional outcome space. LMM is a refinement of the standard Min-Max optimization, but in the former, in addition to the largest outcome, we minimize also the second largest outcome (provided that the largest(More)
Telecommunication networks are facing the increasing demand for In-ternet services. Therefore, a problem of network dimensioning with elastic traffic arises which requires to allocate bandwidth to maximize service flows with fair treatment of all the services. In such applications, the so-called Max-Min Fairness (MMF) solution concept is widely used to(More)
The problem of aggregating multiple criteria to form overall objective functions is of considerable importance in many disciplines. The most commonly used aggregation is based on the weighted sum. The ordered weighted averaging (OWA) aggregation, introduced by Yager, uses the weights assigned to the ordered values (i.e. to the worst value, the second worst(More)
BACKGROUND Depressive disorder (DD), including recurrent DD (rDD), is a severe psychological disease, which affects a large percentage of the world population. Although pathogenesis of the disease is not known, a growing body of evidence shows that inflammation together with oxidative stress may contribute to development of DD. Since reactive oxygen species(More)
— Resource allocation problems are concerned with the allocation of limited resources among competing activities so as to achieve the best overall performances. In this paper, we focus on approaches that attempt to allocate resources equitably among the competing activities. The problems of efficient and equitable resource allocation arise in various(More)
XRCC2 and XRCC3 proteins are structurally and functionally related to RAD51 which play an important role in the homologous recombination, the process frequently involved in cancer transformation. In our previous work we show that the 135G>C polymorphism (rs1801320) of the RAD51 gene can modify the effect of the Thr241Met polymorphism (rs861539) of the XRCC3(More)
The problem of aggregating multiple numerical criteria to form overall objective functions is of considerable importance in many disciplines. The ordered weighted averaging (OWA) aggregation, introduced by Yager, uses the weights assigned to the ordered values rather than to the specific criteria. This allows one to model various aggregation preferences,(More)
The problem of averaging outcomes under several scenarios to form overall objective functions is of considerable importance in decision support under uncertainty. The fuzzy operator defined as the so-called Weighted OWA (WOWA) aggregation offers a well-suited approach to this problem. The WOWA aggregation, similar to the classical ordered weighted averaging(More)
