PAIRWISE COMPARISONS, INCOMPARABILITY AND PARTIAL ORDERS

Ryszard Janicki

Abstract

A new approach to Pairwise Comparisons based Ranking is presented. An abstract model based on the concept of partial order instead of numerical scale is introduced and analysed. Many faults of traditional, numerical-scale based models are discussed. The importance of the concept of equal importance or indifference is discussed.
