Entropy is one of many important mathematical tools for measuring uncertain/fuzzy information. As a subclass of neutrosophic sets (NSs), simplified NSs (including single-valued and interval-valued NSs) can describe incomplete, indeterminate, and inconsistent information. Based on the concept of fuzzy exponential entropy for fuzzy sets, this work proposes exponential entropy measures of simplified NSs (named simplified neutrosophic exponential entropy (SNEE) measures), including single-valued and interval-valued neutrosophic exponential entropy measures, and investigates their properties. Then, the proposed exponential entropy measures of simplified NSs are compared with existing related entropy measures of interval-valued NSs to illustrate the rationality and effectiveness of the proposed SNEE measures through a numerical example. Finally, the developed exponential entropy measures for simplified NSs are applied to a multi-attribute decision-making example in an interval-valued NS setting to demonstrate the application of the proposed SNEE measures. However, the SNEE measures not only enrich the theory of simplified neutrosophic entropy, but also provide a novel way of measuring uncertain information in a simplified NS setting. View Full-Text
