The main contribution of this paper is the definition of a new preference relation, called distance-based preference relation. It allows us to represent the preferential gaps between the alternatives. This makes it possible to express complex preferences that are needed in many realistic settings. We propose a similarity measure on distance-based preferences, which is important in preference elicitation and revision of preference. In addition, the applications of distance based preference…

Reasoning With Conditional Ceteris Paribus Preference Statements
This work proposes a graphical representation of preferences that reflects conditional dependence and independence of preference statements under a ceteris paribus (ali else being equal) interpretation, and describes several search algorithms for dominance testing based on this representation.
