We discuss a consistent model of pairwise comparison-based non-numerical ranking. An algorithm that enforces consistency for raw or partially organized ranking data is presented and its properties are analysed. The concept of testing subjective rankings is also discussed.

Remarks on Pairwise Comparison Numerical and Non-numerical Rankings

A consistent non-numerical ranking that is equivalent to a given consistent numerical ranking is constructed and the correctness of this construction is proven.

The problem of approximating an arbitrary relation by a relation with desired properties by two special cases, approximation by partial orders and approximation by equivalence relations are formally defined and analysed.

Heuristic Rating Estimation Approach to The Pairwise Comparisons Method

The main purpose of this paper is to extend the previously proposed iterative HRE algorithm and present all the heuristics that create a generalized approach and a few numerical examples demonstrating how the selected heuristic can be used in practice.

A Mixed Model for Pairwise Comparisons and Its Applications

This thesis substantially refine ‘mixed model’, and provides some formal foundations for scales and assignment of numerical values for qualitative factors and based on these a formal process to be followed will be followed.

A systematic procedure for deriving weakly ordered non-numerical rankings from given sets of data is proposed and analysed and the concept of a partially ordered approximation of an arbitrary binary relation is formally defined.

Some Remarks on Approximations of Arbitrary Binary Relations by Partial Orders

Four different partial order approximations of an arbirary binary relation are introduced and discussed and three of them are new to the Pairwise Comparisons paradigm.

A new definition of consistency of pairwise comparisons

Remarks on the analytic hierarchy process

The analytic hierarchy process AHP is flawed as a procedure for ranking alternatives in that the rankings produced by this procedure are arbitrary. This paper provides a brief review of several areas

A comparative analysis of methods for constructing weak orders from partial orders

This paper compares three methods (sequel, cardinal, maximal) for constructing a weak order from a partial order on a finite set. The constructed weak orders include the partial order. To evaluate
