Hello Ben,

The bilateral relationship is more like "interaction" that you mentioned. So as a pair a - b would be > = < a - c. From these sets of bilateral relationship, I have to obtain where a is the greatest compared to others in the group, and say e the next and so on.

How would you assign values? Are you are suggesting that I assign values 1 through 5 in this example. In that case sum of all values for all bilateral pairs will be 15. That would give all of the same ranking. The purpose is to obtain a ranking among my original 6 members.

Regards,
Rajiv

Hi Rajiv,

I don't really understand your problem. Is the "bilateral
relationship" of the kind that you imply something like a>b, a>c, and
so on, or are you counting "interactions", i.e. a talks to b, a talks
also to c and so on?

In the former case, you can just assign values of objects dominated
(i.e. a dominates five other objects), assuming transitivity you might
even include indirect domination.

In the latter case you can just count the number of relationships?!

groetjes,
Ben
