A survey of inconsistency indices for pairwise comparisons

This manuscript surveys the most relevant inconsistency indices by means of a self-contained exposition and presents some conclusions and a discussion on possible directions of future research.

Using group theory in pairwise comparisons: a brief critique

The lack of acceptable semantics for selected groups (with negative and complex numbers) and implications are analyzed and examples and mathematical reasoning indicating why inconsistency indicators for pairwise comparisons require normalization are provided.

Some notes on the properties of inconsistency indices in pairwise comparisons

Pairwise comparisons are an important tool of modern (multiple criteria) decision making. Since human judgments are often inconsistent, many studies have focused on the means of expressing and

New preference violation indices for the condition of order preservation

The aim of this paper is to fill this gap and propose new preference violation indices for measuring violation of the condition of the order preservation, and it is shown that the proposed indices satisfy uniqueness, invariance under permutation, invariant under inversion of preferences and continuity axioms.

An Examination of Ranking Quality for Simulated Pairwise Judgments in relation to Performance of the Selected Consistency Measure

The research results argue that although the performance of examined consistency measures deviates from the exemplary ones in relation to the estimation quality of decision makers preferences, solutions proposed in this paper can significantly improve that quality.

Pairwise Comparison Matrices in Decision-Making

Relations between transitivity and consistency of preference matrices being understood differently with respect to the type of preference matrix are investigated and the corresponding priority vectors for final ranking of alternatives are obtained.

On Mathematical structures on pairwise comparisons matrices with coefficients in a group arising from quantum gravity

We describe the mathematical properties of pairwise comparisons matrices with coefficients in an arbitrary group. We provide a vocabulary adapted for the description of main algebraic properties of



Inconsistency indicator maps on groups for pairwise comparisons

Pairwise Comparisons Rating Scale Paradox

This study demonstrates that incorrect data are entered into a pairwise comparisons matrix for processing into weights for the data collected by a rating scale, and proposes a solution, based on normalization, to solve the paradox.

A general unified framework for pairwise comparison matrices in multicriterial methods

By introducing a more general notion of metric, this work provides a consistency index that has a natural meaning and it is easy to compute in the additive and multiplicative cases; in the other cases, it can be computed easily starting from a suitable additive or multiplicative matrix.

Inconsistencies in a schedule of paired comparisons

1. THE METHOD, AND THE HYPOTHESES CONCERNING IT The method of paired comparison has had a long and honourable history in psychological experiments, beginning with the researches of Witmer and Cohn,

The Sources of Kolmogorov’s Grundbegriffe

Andrei Kolmogorov's Grundbegriffe der Wahrscheinlichkeits-rechnung put probability's modern mathematical formalism in place. It also provided a philosophy of probability--an explanation of how the

Outline of a Theory of Statistical Estimation Based on the Classical Theory of Probability

We shall distinguish two aspects of the problems of estimation . (i) the practical and (ii) the theoretical. The practical aspect may be described as follows: (i a ) The statistician is concerned

The origins and legacy of Kolmogorov's Grundbegriffe

April 25, 2003, marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of Andrei Nikolaevich Kolmogorov, the twentieth century's foremost contributor to the mathematical and philosophical foundations of
