Logit choice models for interactive attributes

In multi attribute decision making (MADM), the choice of a decision-maker (DM) is often the result of an interplay between the DM's unique attitude, the utilities (specific to the DM) for the attributes, and the degree of positive (or negative) interaction among the attributes. Based on this conglom...(Read Full Abstract)
