Representing preferences by choquet integral: Guidelines to specify the capacity type

© 2020 by the authors; licensee Growing Science, Canada.This study considers representing decision maker preferences by Choquet integral in existence of interactions among criteria. Parameters of the Choquet integral are capacities which assign weights not only to criteria but also to each subset of criteria. This property provides Choquet integral with the ability of modeling some types of interactions. Different capacity types with different degrees of complexity have been defined in the literature. After making a review on the dependence (interaction) and independence concepts used in the multiple criteria decision making literature, we study and represent structures of interactions that can be handled by different capacity types through intuitive graphical demonstrations. Afterwards, we provide guidelines for specifying the appropriate capacity type in practical applications. Such guidance has not been provided in the literature for the practitioners to the best of our knowledge.

Techno-economic comparative analysis of renewable energy systems: Case study in Zimbabwe
Al-Ghussain, Loiy; Samu, Remember; Taylan, Onur; Fahrioglu, Murat (2020-09-01)
© 2020 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.Fluctuations in fossil fuel prices significantly affect the economies of countries, especially oil-importing countries, hence these countries are thoroughly investigating the increase in the utilization of renewable energy resources as it is abundant and locally available in all the countries despite challenges. Renewable energy systems (RES) such as solar and wind systems offer suitable alternatives for fossil fuels and could ensure the energy securi...
Design optimization of tool holder extension for enhanced chatter stability by using component mode tuning method
Karataş, G.; Özşahin, Orkun; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Budak, E. (2020-01-01)
© 2020 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.Tool overhang length tuning by matching the modes of the tool-holder extension-holder-spindle (TEHS) assembly components creating dynamic absorber effect is one of the rare chatter suppression techniques. In some milling applications, a tool-holder extension may have to be used to increase the overall tool overhang length for reaching far sections of the workpiece. In this work, design parameters of the holder extension and the tool are optimized simultaneously ...
Transformation from SysML to RePast and Back
Çam, Sema; Görür, Bilge K.; Ledet, Joseph; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Yilmaz, Levent (2020-01-01)
© 2020 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.All rights reserved.Applying Model Driven Architecture (MDA) concepts and tools to Multi Agent Systems (MAS) is a topic of great interest in recent years. MDA intends to reduce computer code development effort via model transformations and makes complex systems available and more practical for research. In this work, we propose a model transformation process for a widely used agent-based modeling and simulation tool, RePast Simphony. We adopt SysML for the platf...
Multi objective optimization of water jet guided laser micro drilling on Inconel 718 using Taguchi Method
Subasi, Levent; Gökler, Mustafa İlhan; Yaman, Ulaş (2020-01-01)
© 2020 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.Water jet guided laser overcomes the adverse effects of conventional laser cutting and drilling processes, such as heat-affected-zone, spatter, burr formation, etc. Pressurized water in this novel process provides focusing, cooling and cleaning on the cut region, eliminating undesired side effects of the laser. The process is nowadays used in energy and aerospace industries for drilling micro cooling holes on turbine blades made of super alloys. However, more re...
Activity-Based Photosensitizers with Optimized Triplet State Characteristics Toward Cancer Cell Selective and Image Guided Photodynamic Therapy
Kilic, Eda; ELMAZOĞLU, ZÜBEYİR; Almammadov, Toghrul; KEPİL, DİLAY; Etienne, Thibaud; Marıon, Antoıne; Günbaş, Emrullah Görkem; Kolemen, Safacan (2022-01-01)
© 2022 The Authors. Published by American Chemical Society.Activity-based theranostic photosensitizers are highly attractive in photodynamic therapy as they offer enhanced therapeutic outcome on cancer cells with an imaging opportunity at the same time. However, photosensitizers (PS) cores that can be easily converted to activity-based photosensitizers (aPSs) are still quite limited in the literature. In this study, we modified the dicyanomethylene-4H-chromene (DCM) core with a heavy iodine atom to get two ...
