A New Multi-criteria Convex Quadratic Programming Model for Credit Analysis [chapter]

Gang Kou, Yi Peng, Yong Shi, Zhengxin Chen
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Instead of looking for the global optimal solution, the proposed model only needs to solve a set of linear equations.  ...  To overcome this difficulty, this paper proposes a Multi-criteria Convex Quadratic Programming model (MCCQP).  ...  The last set is a Japanese firm bankruptcy set (Kwak et al 2005) .  ...
