Mathematical methods of operations research by
Thomas L Saaty(
Book
)
33 editions published between 1959 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This unique work represents the first graduatelevel 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 operationsresearch methods ; Excellent exposition of mathematical foundations underlying all classical operationsresearch 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addition, the book serves as a valuable source of references to early literature on operations research, especially the unpublished literature of research notes, memoranda and so forth.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

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

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

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 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Models, Methods, Concepts and Applications of the Analytic Hierarchy Process is a volume dedicated to selected applications of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) focused on three themes: economics, the social sciences, and the linking of measurement with human values. (1) The AHP offers economists a substantially different approach to dealing with economic problems through ratio scales. The main mathematical models on which economics has based its quantitative thinking up to now are utility theory, which uses interval scales, and linear programming. We hope that the variety of examples included here can perhaps stimulate researchers in economics to try applying this new approach. (2) The second theme is concerned with the social sciences. The AHP offers psychologists and political scientists the methodology to quantify and derive measurements for intangibles. We hope that the examples included in this book will encourage them to examine the methods of AHP in terms of the problems they seek to solve. (3) The third theme is concerned with providing people in the physical and engineering sciences with a quantitative method to link hard measurement to human values. In such a process one needs to interpret what the measurements mean. A number is useless until someone understands what it means. It can have different meanings in different problems. Ten dollars are plenty to satisfy one's hunger but are useless by themselves in buying a new car. Such measurements are only indicators of the state of a system, but do not relate to the values of the human observers of that system. AHP methods can help resolve the conflicts between hard measurement data and human values

Decision making with the analytic network process : economic, political, social and technological applications with benefits,
opportunities, costs and risks by
Thomas L Saaty(
Book
)
9 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 35 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 new edition of Decision Making with the Analytic Network Process is a selection of the latest applications of ANP to economic, social and political decisions, and also to technological design. 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 book focuses on the application of the ANP in three different areas: economics, the social sciences and the linking of measurement with human values. Economists can use the ANP for an alternate approach for dealing with economic problems than the usual mathematical models on which economics bases its quantitative thinking. For psychologists, sociologists and political scientists, the ANP offers the methodology they have sought for some time to quantify and derive measurements for intangibles. Finally the book applies the ANP to provide people in the physical and engineering sciences with a quantitative method to link hard measurement to human values. In such a process, one is able to interpret the true meaning of measurements made on a uniform scale using a unit

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.
