This volume summarizes the results of a four-year cooperative contracted study "Theory, Software and Testing Examples for Decision Support Systems" conducted in Poland by four institutions: the Institute of Automatic Control, Warsaw University of Technology, the System Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Control and Systems Engineering, Academy of Mining and Metallurgy in Cracow, and the Institute of Informatics, University of Warsaw in cooperation with the Methodology of the Decision Analysis Project of the System and Decision Sciences Program at IIASA. This research was supported mostly by IIASA funds in Polish national currency, but also by other sources and research grants in Poland, such as the grant RP.1.02 of the Ministry of Education for research in optimization and automatic control; totally, it represents the results of a part-time work of about 30 researchers from these institutions. This volume concentrates on the theoretical and methodological advances of this cooperative study, although it describes also experiences of applications in the area of programming the development of chemical industry together with a decision support system for such purposes as well as presents short descriptions of eight software packages (prototype decision support systems, multiobjective mathematical programming packages and a pilot negotiation support system) that are available together with more detailed documentation as scientific software constituting a part of results of this study.

The research on the Polish side was coordinated by Professor Andrzej P. Wierzbicki and on IIASA's side by Dr. Andrzej Lewandowski, the project leader of the Methodology of Decision Analysis; they served also as the editors of this volume.
