Herrera ViedmaDepartment of Computer Science and Articial Intelligence, University of Granada, SpainJournal Article20180116The main aim of this paper is to present a novel method for ranking hesitant fuzzy sets (HFSs) based on transforming HFSs into fuzzy sets (FSs). The idea behind the method is an interesting HFS decomposition which is referred here to as the horizontal representation in the current study. To show the validity of the proposed ranking method, we apply it to solve a multi-attribute decision-making problem under hesitant fuzzy environment.<br />Interestingly, the results show that the proposed<br />method gives the most accepted precedence of alternatives in comparison with the other existing<br />methods.http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4900_dcd61c6744d2e4adff0925141c427787.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065416520191001A research on classification performance of fuzzy classifiers based on fuzzy set theory1527490210.22111/ijfs.2019.4902ENY.

BaiSchool of Mathematics and Statistics, Xidian University, Xi’an 710126, PR China,, and School of Sciences, Northwest A&F University, Yangling 712100, PR China.Journal Article20171116Due to the complexities of objects and the vagueness of the human mind, it has attracted considerable attention from researchers studying fuzzy classification algorithms. In this paper, we propose a concept of fuzzy relative entropy to measure the divergence between two fuzzy sets. Applying fuzzy relative entropy, we prove the conclusion that patterns with high fuzziness are close to the classification boundary. Thus, it plays a great role in classification problems that patterns with high fuzziness are classified correctly. Meanwhile, we draw a conclusion that the fuzziness of a pattern and the uncertainty of its class label are equivalent. As is well known, entropy not only measures the uncertainty of random variable, but also represents the amount of information carried by the variable. Hence, a fuzzy classifier with high fuzziness would carry much information about training set. Therefore, in addition to some assessment criteria such as classification accuracy, we could study the classification performance from the perspective of the fuzziness of classifier. In order to try to ensure the objectivity in dealing with unseen patterns, we should make full use of information of the known pattern set and do not make too much subjective assumptions in the process of learning. Consequently, for problems with rather complex decision boundaries especially, under the condition that a certain training accuracy threshold is maintained, we demonstrate that a fuzzy classifier with high fuzziness would have a well generalization performance.http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4902_02c5ac3bb02f3f351e568d08d2c53ebf.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065416520191001A note on decision making in medical investigations using new divergence measures for intuitionistic fuzzy sets2931490410.22111/ijfs.2019.4904ENY.

Assisting userslq informational searches with reduced reading surfing time by extracting and evaluating accurate, authentic & relevant information are the primary concerns in the present milieu. Automatic text summarization is the process of condensing an original document into shorter form to create smaller, compact version from the abundant information that is available, preserving the content & meaning such that it meets the needs of the user. Though many summarization techniques have been proposed but there are no lq silver bulletsrq to achieve the superlative results as of human generated summaries. Thus, the domain of text summarization is an active and dynamic field of study, practice & research with the continuous need to expound novel techniques for achieving comparable & effectual results. Fuzzy logic has appeared as a powerful theoretical framework for studying human reasoning and its application has been explored within the domain of text summarization in the past few years. This paper is a systematic literature review to gather, analyze, and report the trends, gaps and prospects of using fuzzy logic for automatic text summarization on the basis of the findings in original studies.http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4906_34facd63ffe35a7145727a9bceebc63e.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065416520191001Multi-granulation fuzzy probabilistic rough sets and their corresponding three-way decisions over two universes6176490710.22111/ijfs.2019.4907ENP.

Four types of MG-FPRSs are established, by the four different conditional probabilities<br />of fuzzy event. For different constraints on parameters, we obtain four kinds of each type MG-FPRSs<br />over two universes. To find a suitable way of explaining and determining these parameters in each<br />kind of each type MG-FPRS, three-way decisions (3WDs) are studied based on Bayesian minimum-risk<br />procedure, i.e., the decision-theoretic rough set (DTRS) approach. The main contribution of this paper<br />is twofold. One is to extend the fuzzy probabilistic rough set (FPRS) to MG-FPRS model over two universes.<br />Another is to present an approach to select parameters in MG-FPRS modeling by using the process of<br />decision-making under conditions of risk.http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4907_38f2f46ea5cc4551395d3e1282ca009e.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065416520191001The KKT optimality conditions for constrained programming problem with generalized convex fuzzy mappings7795490810.22111/ijfs.2019.4908ENF.

Then, the Nussbaum-type function is used to detect the unknown control direction and based on the backstepping technique, the adaptive fuzzy<br />controller is designed. The main advantages of this paper are that (1) in the existing results the separation principle is used to deal with the nonlinearly parameterized functions, unlike them in this paper, the FLS are applied to approximate the nonlinearly parameterized functions, (2) by using the minimal learning parameters (MLP) algorithm, only<br />one parameter needs to be adjusted online in the controller design procedure, which reduces the online<br />computation burden greatly, (3) the Nussbaum-gain technique is introduced to resolve the unknown control direction problems. It is proven that the proposed control scheme renders the closed-loop<br />system stable in the sense of semiglobal uniformly ultimately bounded (UUB). Finally, simulation results are provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach.http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4909_dafcfc9ac12c04cc36302996be2e01bb.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065416520191001Mobile robot wall-following control using a behavior-based fuzzy controller in unknown environments113124491110.22111/ijfs.2019.4911ENT.

XinSchool of Mathematics, Northwest University, Xi'an,710127, ChinaJournal Article20180717We introduce a new formal logic, called equality propositional logic. It has two basic connectives, $boldsymbol{wedge}$ (conjunction) and $equiv$ (equivalence). Moreover, the $Rightarrow$ (implication) connective can be derived as $ARightarrow B:=(Aboldsymbol{wedge}B)equiv A$. We formulate the equality propositional logic and demonstrate that the resulting logic has reasonable properties such as Modus Ponens(MP) rule, Hypothetical Syllogism(HS) rule and completeness, etc. Especially, we provide two ways to prove the completeness of this logic system. We also introduce two extensions of equality propositional logic. The first one is involutive equality propositional logic, which is equality propositional logic with double negation. The second one adds prelinearity which is rich enough to enjoy the strong completeness property. Finally, we introduce additional connective $Delta$(delta) in equality propositional logic and demonstrate that the resulting logic holds soundness and completeness.http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4912_f333b256a3857446705654eb1cb0a78a.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065416520191001Monoidal closedness of $L$-generalized convergence spaces139153491310.22111/ijfs.2019.4913ENL.

MFFTA are a superclass of fuzzy tree automata whose behavior is generalized to adapt to multidimensional fuzzy sets. An MFFTA recognizes a multidimensional fuzzy tree language which is a regular tree language so that for each dimension, a fuzzy membership grade is assigned to each tree. We study MFFTA by extending some classical problems and properties of automata and regular languages such as determinization, reduction, duality and operations on languages. Furthermore, we provided the method of converting every complete fuzzy tree automata to an MFFTA as well as an example to show the efficiency of MFFTA in comparison to FFTA.<br />}http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4915_d78589197f31d31bffe171026a607c80.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065416520191001An EPQ model for an imperfect production process with fuzzy cycle time and quality screening169185491710.22111/ijfs.2019.4917ENH.

SenelSuleyman Demirel University, Department of Computer Engineering, , 32260, Isparta, TurkeyJournal Article20171217This study has developed a production inventory model where the cycle time<br />is fuzzy, the existence of defective products is assumed in each batch and<br />product screening is performed both in-production and after-production.<br />Triangular fuzzy numbers serve to model uncertainties in the cycle time, and<br />a fuzzified total inventory profit function is created by the<br />defuzzification method known as the signed distance method. The classical<br />approach is used to determine the optimal policy, with the ideal cycle time<br />matched to the total profit. Although assuming asymmetric triangular fuzzy<br />numbers prevents the calculation of a clear analytical solution, the method<br />approaches as closely as possible to an analytical solution. A numerical<br />solution to only one equation is needed to obtain the optimal configuration.<br />Conversely, there is a positive trade-off, with an analytical solution to<br />the optimization problem if there is an assumption of symmetrical triangular<br />fuzzy numbers. The proposed model is illustrated by a numerical example. The<br />paper presents results and sensitivity analyses, in both tables and graphic<br />illustrations. The effects on total profit are discussed in relation to<br />various parameters. From the numerical studies, it is observed that the<br />level of fuzziness influences the cycle time and an approximately linear<br />relationship, in the opposite direction, was found between the total profit<br />and the level of fuzziness, when it was increased.http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4917_f35adbb35a642aa550f75bfc3a19b493.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065416520191001Some new variants of interval-valued Gronwall type inequalities on time scales187198491810.22111/ijfs.2019.4918ENA.
