Some examples of specific topics discussed in the 14 included papers are: benchmarking the operating efficiency of US airlines, cooperative public service advertising strategies for a supply chain system, multi-criteria performance measurement for public and private sector enterprises, and a meta-goal programming model for asset allocation of mutual funds under the mean absolute deviation.

An absolute deviation criterion gives rise to quantile-based allocations, whereby diversification is reflected by lowering the confidence level of value-at-risk (VaR) measures applied at subportfolio level.

t-1] = V/100 and the previous mean absolute deviation [MAD.

Expected annual negative Average absolute Probability of Deviation f(for yield risk) = deviation in yield X shortfall in yield Expected annual negative Average absolute Probability of Deviation (for yield and = deviation in gross X shortfall in Price risk) returns per hectare gross returns Where average absolute deviation = [n.

The following parameters were selected for evaluation: Absolute deviation in front/back direction; Absolute deviation in left/right left/right direction; Total travelled way of the centre of pressure or COP.

Figure 13 shows the average of the absolute deviation of the shear viscosity and the primary normal stress difference as a function of the protruding part size E for the parallel plate and the cone-and-plate rheometer.

The widely used Carrier correlation has a mean absolute deviation of 136% and an average deviation of +132%.
