Special Issue "Fuzzy Techniques for Decision Making 2018"
A special issue of Symmetry (ISSN 2073-8994).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2018)
Zadeh's fuzzy set theory incorporates impreciseness of data and evaluations by imputing the degrees to which objects belong to a set. Its appearance induced the rise of several related theories, which codify subjectivity, uncertainty, imprecision, or roughness of evaluations. Their rationale is to produce new and more flexible methodologies in order to realistically model a variety of concrete decision problems. This Special Issue invites contributions addressing novel tools, techniques and methodologies for decision making (e.g., group or multi-criteria decision making) in the context of these theories. Therefore we intend to garner articles in a variety of setups including fuzzy sets, fuzzy soft sets, type-2 fuzzy sets, interval-valued fuzzy sets, hesitant fuzzy sets, fuzzy rough sets and rough fuzzy sets. Extensive review papers which refer to the latest research findings, as well as application papers, are welcome.
Prof. Dr. José Carlos R. Alcantud
