The current e-book fmds its roots within the foreign convention on equipment and functions of a number of standards determination Making held in Mons in could 1997. A small variety of contributions to that convention have been chosen through a refereeing technique and retained authors have been asked to incorporate of their ultimate model their newer effects. This explains why a few papers fluctuate considerably from the unique presentation. The introductory paper of Raynaud addresses the lengthy variety forecasts in a number of standards choice Making at the foundation of a Delphi strategy that used to be run ahead of and through the congress. In a moment half, the French writer explains how he and a few of his companions may perhaps locate the facts of an enormous conjecture : the new release of a strongly monotonic selection functionality isn't a strongly monotonic rating functionality. the second one a part of the booklet covers methodological features of determination conception. The contribution of Bouyssou and Pirlot matters the reformulation of classical conjoint dimension versions that set off an entire and transitive choice binary relation at the set of possible choices which appear to be unrealistic while selection makers are requested to check gadgets evaluated on a number of attributes. The authors suggest to contemplate non transitive, non whole and non additive decomposable conjoint versions. They outline homes that represent such models.

Example text

From the binary relation :5 on the set X2 of outcomes we can deduce a binary relation R on the set X of strategies: xRy <=> (x, y) We will read xRy as «X ~ o. wins or ties against y complete but not transitive in general. ». The binary relation R is The asymetric part of R is 34 Jean-Fran~ois Laslier denoted P and xPy reads« x wins against y It, while the symmetric part or R is denoted I and xIy reads II x ties with y It. The game G is no-tie if xly implies x = y and in this case the binary relation P is a tournament onX.

2 UNCOVERED SET Definition 3 The set of altematives which are not covered for (X,g) is called the Uncovered Set of (X, g) and is denoted by UC(X,g). Suppose that x covers y and y covers z, then g(x,z) ~ g(y,z) > 0 thus g(x,z) > 0 ; moreover, for any t, g(x,t) ~ g(y,t) ~ g(z,t) implies that g(x,t) ~ g(z,t) and we just proved that the covering relation is transitive. Clearly, the covering relation is also anti-symmetric: it is a strict (partial) order. If the set X is fmite, this implies that the set of maximal elements of the covering relation, which we call the Uncovered Set, is non-empty.

The experiment of A. Tversky (1969) that demonstrated the stable intransitivity of choice was based precisely on this property. The subjects were given successive pairs of alternatives where gain increased with a slight increase in payment. And they persistently preferred to get a higher gain for a slight increase in payment. Yet, when given the alternatives from the first and last pairs, they persistently preferred the first one, because they could not admit such a great increase in payment even for a corresponding increase in gain.
