Abstract

In this research paper, we present a novel frame work for handling $m$-polar information by combining the theory of $m-$polar fuzzy  sets with graphs. We introduce certain types of edge regular $m-$polar fuzzy graphs and edge irregular $m-$polar fuzzy graphs. We describe some useful properties of edge regular, strongly edge irregular and strongly edge totally irregular $m-$polar fuzzy graphs. We discuss the relationship between degree of a vertex and degree of an edge in an $m-$polar fuzzy graph. We investigate edge irregularity on a path on $2n$ vertices and barbell graph $B_{n,n}.$
We also present an application of $m-$polar fuzzy graph to decision making.
