Mathematical Models of Plant-Herbivore Interactions

Zhilan Feng, Donald DeAngelis
August 16, 2017

Mathematical Models of Plant-Herbivore Interactions addresses mathematical models in the study of practical questions in ecology, particularly factors that affect herbivory, including plant defense, herbivore natural enemies, and adaptive herbivory, as well as the effects of these on plant...

New Concepts and Trends of Hybrid Multiple Criteria Decision Making

Gwo-Hshiung Tzeng, Kao-Yi Shen
August 16, 2017

When people or computers need to make a decision, typically multiple conflicting criteria need to be evaluated; for example, when we buy a car, we need to consider safety, cost and comfort. Multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) has been researched for decades. Now as the rising trend of big-data...
