Abstract:

A new cone-ratio Data Envelopment Analysis model which substantially generalizes the CCR model and the Charnes-Cooper Thrall approach characterizing its efficiency classes is herein developed and studied. It allows for infinitely many DMUs and arbitrary closed convex cones for the virtual multipliers as well as the cone of positivity of the vectors involved. Generalizations of linear programming and polar cone dualizations are the analytical vehicles employed. Keywords multi-attribute optimization Efficiency Analysis.
