Convergence Properties of Criteria Weights of Dominant AHP with Solving Equations of Interchangeability

Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST, volume 15)

Abstract

This paper focus on convergence properties of interchangeable criteria weight vectors of Dominant AHP(Analytic Hierarchy Process). We find a degree of freedom of the vectors by solving equations which express interchangeability among them. We also reconsider a relation between interchangeability and the law of CRU (Constant of Ratio in Unit Evaluation), an optimality of solutions of CCM (Concurrent Convergence Method), and a relation between Dominant AHP and ANP(Analytic Network Process).
