University of Sistan and Baluchestan Iranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems 1735-0654 17 3 2020 06 01 A new quadratic deviation of fuzzy random variable and its application to portfolio optimization 1 18 5344 10.22111/ijfs.2020.5344 EN X.

Ralescu Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH 45221-0025, USA Y. Liu College of Mathematics & Information Science, Hebei University, Baoding 071002, Hebei, China Journal Article 2020 04 29 The aim of this paper is to propose a convex risk measure in the framework of fuzzy random theory and verify its advantage over the conventional variance approach. For this purpose, this paper defines the quadratic deviation (QD) of fuzzy random variable as the mathematical expectation of QDs of fuzzy variables. As a result, the new risk criterion essentially describes the variation of a fuzzy random variable around its expected value. For triangular and trapezoidal fuzzy random variables as well as their linear combinations, we establish the analytical expressions of their QDs, and obtain the desirable convexity about the analytical expressions with respect to critical parameters. To explore the practical value of the proposed QD, we apply it to a portfolio selection problem to quantify the investment risk, and develop three mean-QD models to find the optimal allocation of the fund in different risky securities. Due to the convexity of our QD, the original three mean-QD models can be turned into their equivalent convex parametric quadratic programming problems, which can be solved by conventional optimization methods. The computational results clearly demonstrate that our new QD significantly reduces the computational complexity that cannot be avoided when variance is used as a risk criterion. Finally, the numerical comparison between the proposed mean-QD model and mean-variance model is conducted to show the consistency between the optimal results in both techniques. Meanwhile, the comparison between the proposed QD, variance, spread, and second moment is made to summarize the similarities and differences between them, distinguish these four risk criteria and determine their respective application scopes in decision systems. http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5344_73c67102e3c79eb384221847de32edf9.pdf

In<br />detail, we define the Extended Ordered Weighted Sum (EOWS) operator and the<br />Extended Ordered Weighted Averaging (EOWA) operator, which are applied in<br />scientometrics evaluation where the preference is over finitely many<br />representative works. As contrast, we also define the Infinite Ordered<br />Weighted Sum (InOWS) operator and the Infinite Ordered Weighted Averaging<br />(InOWA) operator, which are more suitable for the corresponding<br />scientometrics evaluation where all of works of scholars are considered. We<br />also define the family of Infinite Gaussian maxitive OWA weights function<br />and the family of Infinite Gaussian OWA weights function, and discuss some<br />of their mathematical properties. Some illustrative examples, comparisons<br />and figures are provided to better expound their applicability in<br />scientometrics evaluation. http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5346_e23308ee0abf2377c2c8db508d1fd031.pdf

Farhadinia Department of Mathematics, Quchan University of Technology, Quchan, Iran Z. S. Xu Business School, Sichuan University, Chengdu 610064, P.R. China Journal Article 2020 04 30 Throughout the present manuscript, we are going to introduce a novel group emergency decision-making technique in which the application of prospect theory explains the psychological behaviour of the decision maker who is affected by the hesitancy and uncertainty of cognition in decision making problems.\<br />Instead of usual aggregation procedure, we implement here a new fusion technique that is based on modified version of extended hesitant fuzzy set (EHFS), and it definitely keeps possible amount of expert's information more than the existing fusion technique of hesitant fuzzy set (HFS).<br />The main motivation of re-visiting the concept of EHFS comes from its potential role in increasing the richness of numerical appearance in the form of value-groups, and of course its ability in identifying various decision makers in decision making situations. Such a definition further expands the practical applications of HFSs.\<br />Finally, we employ the barrier lake problem to illustrate the feasibility and the validity of the presented technique. http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5349_bac9db9730fa0809cd49c805937a4ef5.pdf

Box 31006, Pamplona, Spain Journal Article 2020 04 30 Sometimes we have to work with  \$L\$-fuzzy context sequences where one or more values are missing. These sequences can represent, among other things, the evolution in time of an \$L\$-fuzzy context. The studies of tendencies that we have done so far used tools that are not valid when the \$L\$-fuzzy context has unknown values. In this work we address such situations and we propose new methods to tackle the problem. Besides, we use the study of tendencies to analyse relations between the objects and the attributes of \$L\$-fuzzy contexts and to replace the absent values  taking into account the behaviour of the sequence. http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5350_ea300bf7daceac1d49de538f2bc29564.pdf

Zamzamzadeh Department of Applied Mathematics, Faculty of Sciences and Modern Technologies, Graduate University of Advanced Technology, Kerman, Iran M. A. Yaghoobi Department of Applied Mathematics, Faculty of Mathematics and Computer, Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman, Kerman, Iran Journal Article 2020 04 30 This paper considers a biobjective transportation problem with various fuzzy objective functions coefficients. Fuzzy coefficients can be of different types such as triangular, trapezoidal, (semi) \$L-R\$, or flat (semi) \$L-R\$ fuzzy numbers. First, we convert the problem to a parametric interval biobjective transportation problem using \$gamma\$-cuts of fuzzy coefficients. Then, we consider a fix \$gamma\$-cut and obtain a necessarily weak efficient solution to the yielded interval biobjective program by a new algorithm. It uses basic feasible solutions and the parametric simplex algorithm. Furthermore, we suggest another algorithm for finding a reasonable solution, called \$gamma^*\$-necessarily weak efficient, to the main biobjective transportation problem. To illustrate the validity and performance of the proposed algorithms, we present some numerical examples. http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5351_9f179eab6e54be4c0624099ec6624cad.pdf

R. Sun School of Mathematics, Shandong University, 250100 Jinan, PR China H. W. Liu School of Mathematics, Shandong University, 250100 Jinan, PR China Journal Article 2020 04 30 Recently the distributive equations involving various classes of aggregation operators have aroused widespread attention because of their importance in the theoretic and applied communities of fuzzy set theory. 2-uninorms and semi-t-operators are two special classes of aggregation operators and have been proved to be useful in many areas such as fuzzy decision making, approximate reasoning and so on. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to investigate the left (right) distributivity of semi-t-operators over 2-uninorms. We consider five subclasses of 2-uninorms and characterize the corresponding left (right) distributive equations of semi-t-operators over 2-uninorms. http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5352_c4ae9a0dbacdcd812912a58d35f79484.pdf

Hussain Department of Mathematics and Statistics Faculty of Basic and Applied Sciences International Islamic University Islamabad Pakistan, M. I. Ali Department of Mathematics, Islamabad Model College for Girls F-6/2, Islamabad, Pakistan T. Mahmood Department of Mathematics and Statistics Faculty of Basic and Applied Sciences International Islamic University Islamabad Pakistan, Journal Article 2020 04 30 The aim of this manuscript is to present a new concept of hesitant q-rung orthopair fuzzy sets (Hq-ROFSs) by combining the concept of the q-ROFSs as well as Hesitant fuzzy sets. The proposed concept is the generalization of the fuzzy sets, intuitionistic fuzzy sets, hesitant fuzzy sets, and Pythagorean fuzzy sets as well as intuitionistic hesitant fuzzy sets (IHFSs) and hesitant Pythagorean fuzzy sets (HPFSs).Furthermore some basic operational laws of hesitant q-rung orthopair fuzzy have been investigated. The score and accuracy functions are defined which play a vital role in decision making process for making comparison between the hesitant q-rung orthopair fuzzy numbers (Hq-ROFNs). Under the Hq-ROF environment, Hq-ROF weighted averaging (Hq-ROFWA) and Hq-ROF weighted geometric (Hq-ROFWG) operators are introduced and various properties of these aggregation operators are studied. Additionaly, a numerical application shows that how the proposed operators are utilized to solve multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) problems in which experts added their optimistic and pessimistic preferences. Finally the analysis of proposed method with other methods is presented which show that the method presented in this paper is more flexible and superior than existing methods. http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5353_4b4941e8688ba4bbaf237f7d52c2e9b2.pdf

Yadegari Electrical Engineering Faculty, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Mashhad, Iran S. A. Seyedin Electrical Engineering Faculty, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Mashhad, Iran Journal Article 2020 04 30 One of the important challenges in Graphical models is the problem of dealing with the uncertainties in the problem. Among graphical networks, fuzzy cognitive map is only capable of modeling fuzzy uncertainty and the Bayesian network is only capable of modeling probabilistic uncertainty. In many real issues, we are faced with both fuzzy and probabilistic uncertainties. In these cases, the proposed method of this paper can take into account both types of uncertainty with a new and different approach. In this method, we avoid fuzzy transformations to probabilities and vice versa, and fuzzy uncertainties and probabilities are considered jointly. For this purpose, in the original graphical model, first, the type of uncertainty of each node is identified, and accordingly two separate fuzzy and probabilistic networks are constructed. In these networks, relations between nodes are expressed in terms of a set of rules. In each network, fuzzy and probabilistic inference is individually constructed and ultimately the values obtained from each network are combined. This method has been tested on a real problem of localization in wireless sensor networks. In this case, a sensor with uncertain location should be able to predict its location from the received power of its adjacent sensors. In the given scenario, 60 sensors with uncertain locations and 121 sensors with a specific location are considered. Meanwhile, the average location error of sensors has been used to evaluate the methods. The simulation results show the efficiency of the proposed method well. http://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5354_6bd9888d8b3636877270807686991fae.pdf
