Special Seminar: What is a Decision Problem?
Presented by CCICADA, DIMACS and RUTCOR*

Title: What is a Decision Problem?

Speaker: Alexis Tsoukias, Research Director, The National Center for
Scientific Research Laboratory for Analysis and System Modeling for
Decision -  LAMSADE Université Paris Dauphine

Date: Wednesday, February 25, 2015   11:00am - 12:00pm  
      (*rescheduled from January 28, 2015*) 

Location: CoRE Bldg, Room 431, Rutgers University
Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ


The talk introduces a general framework through which any type of
decision problems should be characterizable. The aim of the framework is
to show that only a finite number of primitive characteristics describe
a decision problem, thus reducing the number of archetypes to a finite
number of combinations. In the talk we present in some detail some of
these characteristics. We also provide a number of simple examples in
order to show how this framework helps in categorizing current decision
problems, in reformulating decision problems and in constructing formal
arguments for the decision aiding process.


*This seminar is a presentation of the Command, Control, and
Interoperability Center for Advanced Data Analysis (CCICADA), Center for
Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS), and
Rutgers University Center for Operations Research (RUTCOR).
