Abstract

In this note we study restrictions on the recently introduced super-additive and sub-additive transformations, AA and AA, of an aggregation function A. We prove that if A has a slightly stronger property of being strictly directionally convex, then A = A and A is linear; dually, if A is strictly directionally concave, then A = A and A is linear. This implies, for example, the existence of pairs of functions fg sub-additive and super-additive on [0, ∞[n, respectively, with zero value at the origin and satisfying relatively mild extra conditions, for which there exists no aggregation function A on [0, ∞[n such that A=f and A=g.
