A RUDN mathematician suggested a method of evaluating the level of nonadditivity in a choice problem, i.e. to calculate how the parameters of the choice are connected to each other, and how it influences the end result. The study will help analyze such systems and find out the most optimal decision by means of calculations. The work was published in the Information Sciences journal.
