Overview

This monograph is devoted to the identification and measurement theory of costs and benefits in a fuzzy information environment. The process of cost-benefit analysis is presented, requiring the development of real cost-benefit databases and the construction of cost-benefit criterion. These steps are accomplished with various theoretical constructs that provide sets of self-contained algorithms for application. This book integrates cost-benefit analysis, theory of fuzzy decisions and social decisions into unified decision algorithms accessible to practitioners, researchers, and graduate students. It features the essentials of fuzzy mathematics and algorithms in a comprehensive way, exposing a multi-disciplinary approach for the development of cost-benefit decision making in the framework of fuzziness and soft computing.
