Partial Order Concepts in Applied Sciences (Hardcover)
about this item
The book is a collection of papers from the 11th Partial Order workshop, held in Florence, Italy in 2015. It illustrates the recent advances in applications of partial order theory and Hasse diagram techniques to data analysis, mainly in the socio-economic and environmental sciences. Partial order theory has been considered for years a fundamental branch of mathematics of only theoretical interest. In recent years, its effectiveness as a tool for data analysis is increasingly being realized and many applications of partially ordered sets to real problems in statistics and applied sciences have appeared. Main examples pertain to the analysis of complex and multidimensional systems of ordinal data and to problems of multi-criteria decision making, so relevant in social and environmental sciences.
