Handling preferences over multiple objectives (or attributes ) poses serious challenges to the development of automated solutions to complex decision problems. The number of decision outcomes grows exponentially with the number of attributes, and that makes elicitation, maintenance, and reasoning with preferences particularly complex. This problem can potentially be alleviated by using a factored representation of preferences based on independencies among the attributes. This work has two main components.Let Al, A2, A3, and A4 be points in the domain of A. Then [Al, A2]l[A3, A4] if and only if for any values pl , p2, p3 , p4 of p such ... To illustrate how this WTP function supports nonlinearity, assume that Alice is looking to buy a new car, and has the following reserve prices. ... Mercedes with configuration Mg (M with GPS): $40090.
