This quantity, edited as a Festschrift in honor of Prof. Milan Zeleny, displays and emulates his unmistakable legacy: the basic multidimensionality of human and social affairs. there are various degrees of this multidimensionality offered during this quantity: 1. Multidisciplinarity of contributed papers 2. Multinationality in their authors, extending even to the editors and the writer and three. Multicultural and multilevel exposition, starting from empirical stories to philosophical foundations. commonly, those papers should be divided into 3 components: a number of standards choice Making; Social and Human process administration; and knowledge, wisdom and knowledge administration. it's the attractiveness of multidimensionality in choice making, economics, optimization, platforms, cybernetics and the pursuit of information that endure the stamp of particular Zeleny's contributions. His life-long commitment to multidimensionality has produced an final multidimensional being, residing in educational 'multiverse', functioning in a boundaryless international of all continents, cultures and international locations. This publication is as diversified and as multidimensional because the guy and his work.

Here (p) is called the length of p, that is, its number of nodes, while i and j are called the initial and terminal nodes of path p, respectively. We will consider only loopless paths between any given pair of nodes, that is, paths with no repeated nodes. The set of loopless paths from i to j will be denoted by Pij and P will represent the set of loopless paths from the originating node s to the terminating node t. The formulation of the path calculation problem for a given node-to-node traffic flow from s to t will also assume that some attributes of this flow are known.

Note that, in some models, the concerns which lead to certain QoS routing approaches, are relevant to more explicit multicriteria analysis. One of those cases can be found in [Widyono, 1994] where it is proposed an exact restricted shortest path (RSP) which enables, for example, to obtain successive shortest paths between pairs of nodes for different values of the right hand-side constraint on the delay, hence obtaining nondominated solutions. In this case we could put in evidence that the exact bicriterion shortest path approach in [Clímaco and Martins, 1982] could be used in this type of study in a much more efficient manner.
