This quantity, edited as a Festschrift in honor of Prof. Milan Zeleny, displays and emulates his unmistakable legacy: the fundamental multidimensionality of human and social affairs. there are numerous degrees of this multidimensionality offered during this quantity: 1. Multidisciplinarity of contributed papers 2. Multinationality in their authors, extending even to the editors and the writer and three. Multicultural and multilevel exposition, starting from empirical experiences to philosophical foundations. usually, those papers might be divided into 3 elements: a number of standards determination Making; Social and Human procedure administration; and knowledge, wisdom and knowledge administration. it's the popularity of multidimensionality in selection making, economics, optimization, platforms, cybernetics and the pursuit of information that endure the stamp of particular Zeleny's contributions. His life-long commitment to multidimensionality has produced an final multidimensional being, dwelling in educational 'multiverse', functioning in a boundaryless global of all continents, cultures and nations. This e-book is as assorted and as multidimensional because the guy and his work.

These routing problems are quite relevant in multiservice Internet technologies, namely MPLS, and in some ATM routing protocols. It is well known in multicriteria model analysis that a possible approach consists of transforming the objective functions into constraints, excepting one of them which is then optimised. N. Clímaco et al. / Multicriteria Routing Models in Telecommunication Networks will be non-dominated concerning the original multiobjective model. Furthermore if one varies the second member of the constraints different non-dominated solutions may be obtained [Steuer, 1986].

N. Clímaco et al. / Multicriteria Routing Models in Telecommunication Networks 19 of extremely high capacity information rates (up to the order of Tbits/s – 1012 ) with a significant degree of flexibility, enabling very large economies of scale in information transport. , 2003]. Beyond the very fast pace of technological innovation three major factors have conditioned and determined the evolution of telecommunication networks: traffic growth (both quantitative and qualitative), demand for new services (specially broadband services) and the rapid liberalisation since the 90’s.

This requires the necessity of implementing automated routing calculation procedures and explains the predominance of methods in which there is an a priori articulation of preferences. Nevertheless we think that there are still advantages in considering explicit multicriteria modelling since this enables rendering the mechanisms of preference aggregation transparent. By using multicriteria approaches several aspects, namely cost and QoS parameters, can be addressed explicitly by the mathematical models, as objective functions or as constraints, thence enabling a more realistic representation of the underlying engineering problem.
