Special Issue in Mathematics: Mathematical Problems in Mechanical Engineering
In recent years, water, energy, food, and their nexus are becoming an increasingly significant and active area of research in economic and management science, especially in terms of safety, a research area where a number of important problems are emerging. These problems can be considered multicriteria decision-making problems. However, there are few studies to date which consider these problems from a multicriteria decision-making point of view. Decision-making theories are routinely based on the notion that decision makers choose alternatives which align with their underlying preferences, and hence, that their preferences can be inferred from their choices. The aim of this Special Issue is to develop various decision-making theories and methodologies for water, energy, and food, including evaluation of water supply, wastewater management, energy, food risk management, safety management, etc.
