Families of relations modelling preferences under incomplete information
AbstractLet us consider a preferential information of type preference-indifference-incomparability (P,Â I,Â J), with additional information about differences in attractiveness between pairs of alternatives. The present paper offers a theoretical framework for the study of the "level of constraint" of this kind of partial preferential information. It suggests a number of structures as potential models being less demanding than the classical one in which differences in utilities can be used to represent the comparison of differences in attractiveness. The models are characterized in the more general context of families of non-complete preference structures, according to two different perspectives (called "semantico-numerical" and "matrix"). Both perspectives open the door to further practical applications connected with elicitation of the preferences of a decision maker.
