There's a call for for aids to determination making from varied medical disciplines within the review and administration of environmental difficulties. given that such difficulties can't be solved at the foundation of 1 criterion of selection, i.e. via the optimization of a unmarried criterion, multicriteria selection aids (MCDA) need to be used. there's a number of MCDA tools, each one having been built for a selected area of software. the following it's proven that many tools can be utilized within the environmental administration challenge.
The booklet is split into 3 sections. part 1 is worried with MCDA in environmental managements, and is subdivided into sections overlaying basic points, environmental making plans, waste administration, and effort administration. part 2 includes 3 papers: atmosphere, social offerings and intergenerational fairness; symptoms for sustainable agriculture and rural improvement, and instruments for research; and An atmosphere and its equilibrium issues. part three comprises contributions on numerous particular MCDA equipment, reminiscent of neural nets, ARGUS, AHP, SURMESURE, morphological theories, and rough-set sorting.

M. feasible actions belongs to one of the subset Yj; -if y belongs to Yj then x'=hj(y). 26 In other words, the reaction (x') of the plant manager to any feasible incentive (y), which was defined implicitly as the optimal solution of the plant manager's problem, can be explicitly computed as the value taken by a "piecewise-continuous" function h at y. t. {Fi(x',y), i=l. n} G(x',y) ~ 0 x'=hj(Y) if y belongs to Yj Hence the resolution of problem (BMP) consists in two phases : a) Generation of the subsets Yj and the continuous functions hj; b) Resolution of problem (BMP*) using standard multiobjective optimization methods, through slight adaptations due to the piecewise structure of the problem.

In such cases the expert speaks of synergism. The aim of this paper is two-fold. tion. Secondly we present the concept of synergism for two and more criterion functions. Whenever one can use an utility function the synergism and the counterpart called antagonism can be defined by inequalities of the utility function. This concept is motivated by an example of air-pollution and the growthrate of plants as utility function. Finally we introduce the concept of synergism for the preferences of a decision maker.

I. Satisfaction produite par un profil. 'evaluation d'un objet i sur une propriete j est defini par: (I) Sj(i) = Pj(i) A 1t(j) Cet indice de satisfaction partielle correspond au niveau de verite de "i possede j ET j est importante". 'evaluation provienne d'une propriete importante. a) Sj(u) = 1t(j). 'evaluation de i sur I ou sur 2 ou ... sur la derniere propriete est source de satisfaction " so it: s(i) = V [sj(i) I j = 1 ... 1t(j) I j = 1 ... d) s(u) = supE.
