Pages: 226 - 239
In this paper, properties of operations and algebraic structures of hesitant fuzzy sets are investigated. Semilattices of hesitant fuzzy sets with union and intersection are discussed, respectively. By using ⊕ and ⊗ operators, the commutative monoid of hesitant fuzzy sets is provided, moreover,...

5. Doubt Atanassov's intuitionistic fuzzy Sub-implicative ideals in -algebras

Tripti Bej, Madhumangal Pal
Pages: 240 - 249
The notions of doubt Atanassov's intuitionistic fuzzy sub-implicative ideals and doubt Atanassov's intuitionistic fuzzy -ideals of -algebras are introduced. We show that an Atanassov's intuitionistic fuzzy subset of -algebras is an Atanassov's intuitionistic fuzzy sub-implicative ideal if and only if...

6. Pure linguistic PROMETHEE I and II methods for heterogeneous MCGDM problems

M. Espinilla, N. Halouani, H. Chabchoub
Pages: 250 - 264
The PROMETHEE methods basic principle is focused on a pairwise comparison of alternatives for each criterion, selecting a preference function type that often requires parameters in order to obtain a preference value. When a MCGDM problem is defined in an heterogeneous context, an adequate and common...

7. NN-SANARX model based control of a multi tank liquid-level system

Juri Belikov, Eduard Petlenkov
Pages: 265 - 277
This paper is devoted to application of neural network with a specific restricted connectivity structure for identification and control of a real process. Parameters of the identified model are used to design a controller based on dynamic feedback linearization. The designed neural network based controller...

8. Roughness of fuzzy soft sets and related results

Zhaowen Li, Tusheng Xie
Pages: 278 - 296
This paper investigates roughness of fuzzy soft sets. A pair of fuzzy soft rough approximations is proposed and their properties are given. Based on fuzzy soft rough approximations, the concept of fuzzy soft rough sets is introduced. New types of fuzzy soft sets such as full, intersection complete and...

9. Short-term Power Demand Forecasting using the Differential Polynomial Neural Network

Ladislav Zjavka
Pages: 297 - 306
Power demand forecasting is important for economically efficient operation and effective control of power systems and enables to plan the load of generating unit. The purpose of the short-term electricity demand forecasting is to forecast in advance the system load, represented by the sum of all consumers...

10. A Further Research on S-core for Interval Cooperative Games

Dengyuan Xie, Fei Guan, Qiang Zhang
Pages: 307 - 316
Interval cooperative game is a kind of model focusing on how to distribute the profit reasonably when payoffs of any alliance are interval numbers. In recent years, the existence and reasonableness of its solution have aroused widespread concern. In this paper, based on the conceptual analyses of various...

11. A Fuzzy TODIM Approach for the Supplier Selection Problem

Ömür Tosun, Gökhan Akyüz
Pages: 317 - 329
Supplier evaluation and selection is a kind of problem which includes multiple criteria of qualitative and quantitative properties. From different alternatives it requires to find the best option using different criteria and opinions of the decision makers. Because of the judgments or the bias of the...

12. Multi-Criteria and Multi-Stage Facility Location Selection under Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Environment: A Case Study for a Cement Factory

Ferhan Cebi, İrem Otay
Pages: 330 - 344
The study proposes a comprehensive and systematic approach for multi-criteria and multi-stage facility location selection problem. To handle with high and more uncertainty in the evaluation and selection processes, the problem is solved by using multi-criteria decision making technique with interval...
