Multidisciplinarity of contributed papers 2. Multinationality in their authors, extending even to the editors and the writer and three. Multicultural and multilevel exposition, starting from empirical stories to philosophical foundations. often, those papers will be divided into 3 components: a number of standards choice Making; Social and Human process administration; and knowledge, wisdom and knowledge administration. it's the reputation of multidimensionality in determination making, economics, optimization, structures, cybernetics and the pursuit of data that endure the stamp of particular Zeleny's contributions. His life-long commitment to multidimensionality has produced an final multidimensional being, dwelling in educational 'multiverse', functioning in a boundaryless international of all continents, cultures and international locations. This e-book is as varied and as multidimensional because the guy and his work.

Example text

In Section 2 an overview of a significant number of contributions in various types of multicriteria routing models will be presented. The following section describes a novel bi-level hierarchical multicriteria routing optimisation model for multiservice networks and its application to a video traffic routing problem. Finally, in Section 4 we outline some conclusions and future trends in this research area. Overview of Evolution in Telecommunication Networks Concerning technological evolution it can be said, from a historical perspective, that major evolutions in telecommunication networks have been centred around two main principles of information transfer, namely ‘circuit switching’ (typical of classical telephone networks) and ‘packet switching’ (typical of Internet).

A multiobjective shortest path model with constraints for computing packet stream routes in a given area of Internet is proposed in [Beugnies and Gandibleux, 2003], using objective functions of min-sum and max-min type. [Beugnies and Gandibleux, 2006] describe a multiobjective routing model for the Internet using a multiobjective shortest path formulation that uses as path metrics total average delay, hop-count and residual bandwidth; an exact algorithm for calculating the set of efficient solutions for connections from one node to all the other nodes and a selection procedure based on a weighted Chebyshev distance to the ideal point, are developed.
