An axiomatization of the Euclidean compromise solution
(), Anne van den Nouweland and Rich McLean
Abstract: The utopia point of a multicriteria optimization problem
is the vector that specifies for each criterion the most favourable among
the feasible values. The Euclidean compromise solution in multicriteria
optimization is a solution concept that assigns to a feasible set the
alternative with minimal Euclidean distance to the utopia point. The
purpose of this paper is to provide a characterization of the Euclidean
compromise solution. Consistency plays a crucial role in our approach.
