Abstract : It is shown that the biased quadratic problem in the static multiattribute case can be replaced by a single equivalent linear programming problem which is of classic assignment type. In the dynamic case the authors effect reduction to a multilinear problem. The method encompasses a broader variety of non-linear functionals than is involved in this particular case. These, therefore, are herein reduced to effectively soluble problems. (Modified author abstract)
