Abstract

Srivastava and Maheshwari (Iranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems 13(1)
(2016) 25-44) introduced a new divergence measure for intuitionistic
fuzzy sets (IFSs). The properties of the proposed divergence measure
were studied and the efficiency of the proposed divergence measure
in the context of medical diagnosis was also demonstrated. In this
note, we point out some errors in the proving process of two
properties of the proposed divergence measure. Then we give a
modification of the proving process.
