Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Combining numerous input arguments, specially in case most arguments lie in a concentrate region, is a complex issue. This chapter proposes to partition the input domain on the basis of the concentrate region, which can then be tackled based on the sub regions. Furthermore, two bi-variate aggregation functions are proposed, which aim to behave differently in response to the corresponding sub-regions. The bi-variate functions are extended further into multivariate functions in combination with the popular Ordered Weighted Averaging OWA operators. Finally, the proposed aggregation functions are assessed using a case study where the maintainability of the Linux Kernels is evaluated, demonstrating the effectiveness of the proposed functions.
