Another Approach to Roughness of Soft Graphs with Applications in Decision Making
AbstractFuzzy sets, rough sets and soft sets are different tools for modeling problems involving uncertainty. Graph theory is another powerful tool for representing the information by means of diagrams, matrices or relations. A possible amalgamation of three different concepts rough sets, soft sets and graphs, known as soft rough graphs, is proposed by Noor et al. They introduced the notion of vertex, edge induced soft rough graphs and soft rough trees depending upon the parameterized subsets of vertex set and edge set. In this article, a new framework for studying the roughness of soft graphs in more general way is introduced. This new model is known as the modified soft rough graphs or -graphs. The concept of the roughness membership function of vertex sets, edge sets and of a graph is also introduced. Further, it has been shown that -graphs are more robust than soft rough graphs. Some results, which are not handled by soft rough graphs, can be handled by modified soft rough graphs. The notion of uncertainty measurement associated with -graphs is introduced. All applications related to decision makings are only restricted to the information of individuals only, not their interactions, using this technique we are able to involve the interactions (edges) of individuals with each other that enhanced the accuracy in decisions.
