The word consensus has been  frequently used  for centuries, perhaps millenia. People have always deemed it important that decisions having a long lasting impact on groups, countries or even civilizations be arrived at in a consensual manner.  Undoubtedly the complexity of modern world in all its social, technological, economic and cultural dimensions has created new environments where consensus is regarded desirable.  Consensus typically denotes a state of agreement prevailing in a group of agents, human or software.    In the strict sense of the term, consensus means that the agreement be unanimous.  Since such a state is often unreachable or even unnecessary, other less demanding consensus-related notions have been introduced. These typically involve some graded, partial or imprecise concepts. The contributions to this volume define and utilize such less demanding - and thus at the same time more general - notions of consensus.  However, consensus can also refer to a process whereby the state of agreement is reached.  Again this state can be something less stringent than a complete unanimity of all agents regarding all options. The process may involve modifications, resolutions and /or mitigations of the views or inputs of individuals or software agents in order to achieve the state of consensus understood in the more general sense.   The consensus reaching processes call for some soft computational approaches, methods and techniques, notably fuzzy and possibilistic ones. These are needed to accommodate the imprecision in the very meaning of some basic concepts utilized in the definition of consensus as a state of agreement and as a process whereby this state is to be reached. The overall aim of this volume is to provide a comprehensive overview and analysis of the issues related to consensus states and consensual processes.

Book Description Springer-Verlag Gmbh Mai 2011, 2011. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Consensus has been a much talked about word for centuries, maybe millennia since people have always been aware of its importance for arriving at proper decisions which have had a long lasting impact on life of groups of people, countries or even civilizations. Needless to say that the growing complexity of the present world, in all its social, economic and technological dimensions, has made the word to be used so frequently nowadays.What concerns the way consensus is usually meant, by consensus it is meant, on the one hand, a general agreement within the group of people, or agents, both human and software. Clearly, in the strict meaning the general agreement has been viewed in the sense of a full and unanimous agreement. Since this may be an unreachable ideal, people have replaced this ideal concept by a more realistic one that encompasses all forms of partial, graded, etc. agreements within a group. This is also assumed on general in this volume. The second sense of consensus is related to a process of reaching consensus which aims at reaching an agreement, possibly a high one, of all, or most, agents. It can involve the resolution and/or mitigation of some minor objections concerning options or aspects in question or individual agents involved. This second sense of consensus does involve the first one because the process of reaching an agreement must be related to some assessment of agreement within the group. This volume is concerned with consensus reaching processes which may occur both within human groups and groups of intelligent agents. It is adopted, first of all, a modern and realistic definition of consensus that considers consensus not necessarily as full and unanimous agreement but as agreement to some extent. This calls for some soft computational tools and techniques,notably fuzzy and possibilistic ones to be able to account for imprecision in the very meaning of many concepts, issues and properties that play a role in both that more realistic definition of consensus and the very process of consensus reaching. In this setting a comprehensive coverage of various issues related to consensus and consensual processes is provided. 430 pp. Englisch. Seller Inventory # 9783642205323
