Abstract

Predominantly in the faltering atmosphere, the precise value of some factors is difficult to measure. Though, it can be easily approximated by intuitionistic fuzzy linguistic term in the real-life world problem. To deal with such situations, in this paper two information measures based on trigonometric function for intuitionistic fuzzy sets, which are a generalized version of the fuzzy information measures are introduced. Based on it new trigonometric similarity measure is developed. Mathematical illustration displays reasonability and effectiveness of the information measures for IFSs by comparing it with the existing information measures. Corresponding to information and similarity measures for IFSs, two new methods: (1) Intuitionistic Fuzzy Similarity Measure Weighted Average Operator (IFSMWAO) method for township development and (2) TOPSIS method for multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) (investment policies) problems have been developed.  In the existing methods the authors have assumed the weight vectors, while in the proposed method it has been calculated  using intuitionistic fuzzy information measure. This enhances the authenticity of the proposed method.
