Thomas L. Saaty
Thomas L. Saaty before he passed away in August 2017 was a professor at the University of Pittsburgh, where he taught in the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business. He was the inventor, architect, and primary theoretician of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), a decision-making framework used for large-scale, multiparty, multi-criteria decision analysis, and of the Analytic Network Process (ANP), its generalization to decisions with dependence and feedback. More recently he generalized the mathematics of the ANP to the Neural Network Process (NNP) with application to neural firing and synthesis.
