Bentkowska Interdisciplinary Centre for Computational Modelling, University of Rzeszow, Al. Rejtana 16C, 35-959 Rzeszow, Poland Journal Article 2017 07 13 In this contribution connections between input fuzzy relations R<sub>1</sub>, . . . ,R<sub>n</sub> on a set <em>X</em> and the output fuzzy relation<br />R<sub>F</sub> = F(R<sub>1</sub>, . . . ,R<sub>n</sub>) are studied. F is a function of the form F : [0, 1]<sup>n</sup> → [0, 1] and R<sub>F</sub> is called an aggregated fuzzy<br />relation. In the literature the problem of preservation, by a function <em>F</em>, diverse types of properties of fuzzy relations<br />R<sub>1</sub>, . . . ,R<sub>n</sub> is examined. Here, it is considered the converse approach. Namely, fuzzy relation R<sub>F</sub> = F(R<sub>1</sub>, . . . ,R<sub>n</sub>) is<br />assumed to have a given property and then it is checked if fuzzy relations R<sub>1</sub>, . . . ,R<sub>n</sub> have this property. Moreover, a<br />discussion on the mentioned two approaches is provided. The properties, which are examined in this paper, depend on<br />their notions on binary operations B : [0, 1]<sup>2</sup> → [0, 1]. By incorporating operation B these properties are generalized<br />versions of known properties of fuzzy relations. https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4640_dc4adb5c9a4cc97602f04fd3e6fcdcb3.pdf

Ferdowsi Faculty of Mathematics, Shiraz University of Technology, Shiraz, Iran H. R. Maleki Faculty of Mathematics, Shiraz University of Technology, Shiraz, Iran S. Niroomand Department of Industrial Engineering, Firouzabad Institute of Higher Education, Firouzabad, Fars, Iran Journal Article 2018 03 13 Using alternative fuel vehicles is one of the ways to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels which have many negative environmental effects. An alternative fuel vehicle needs special planning for its refueling operations because of some reasons, e.g. limited number of refueling stations, uncertain refueling queue times in the stations, variable alternative fuel prices among the stations, etc. In this paper, a new problem as refueling an alternative fuel vehicle on a given path is formulated to minimize the cost of refueling and waiting times in the stations for refueling operations, simultaneously. To be more close to real-world situations, the waiting times are considered as intuitionistic fuzzy numbers in order to reflect uncertainty as well as hesitation due to various uncontrollable factors. To cope with the uncertainty of the problem, an intuitionistic fuzzy chance constrained method based on credibility measure is proposed to convert the fuzzy formulation to a crisp model. In order to tackle the bi-objective crisp formulation, a new interactive fuzzy solution method is proposed. A computational study on a real case from Turkey shows that the performance of the presented method is either better or the same as the approaches of the literature.<br />} https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4644_1f94e63243159a2429dd6d412999e583.pdf

Journal Article 2017 04 13 Fuzzy quasi-interpolations help to reduce the complexity of solving a linear system of equations compared with fuzzy interpolations. Almost all fuzzy quasi-interpolations are focused on the form of \$widetilde{f}^{*}:mathbb{R}rightarrow F(mathbb{R})\$ or \$widetilde{f}^{*}:F(mathbb{R})rightarrow mathbb{R}\$.  In this paper, we intend to offer a novel fuzzy radial basis function by the concept of source distance. Then, we will construct a fuzzy linear combination of such basis functions in order to introduce a fully fuzzy quasi-interpolation in the form of \$widetilde{f}^{*}:F(mathbb{R})rightarrow F(mathbb{R})\$. Also the error estimation of the proposed method is proved in terms of the fully fuzzy modulus of continuity which will be introduced in this paper. Finally some examples have been given to emphasize the acceptable accuracy of our method. https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4645_60187389011459142e156614567ad4e0.pdf

In this paper, we define and characterize an allocation rule in terms of the position value, called an average spanning tree solution, for communication situations by introducing a concept of cooperation relationship which says that two players are deemed to possess this relationship if there is a communication path through them. Considering the fact that the extent to what players participate in a coalition may be partially restricted for uncertain possibilities, we construct a graph game in multilinear extension form and continue to explore the fuzzy average spanning tree solution on a framework of communication situation with fuzzy coalition. https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4647_539ca614c35151fcec95d77cea189993.pdf

Gao College of Modern Economics & Management, Jiangxi University of Finance and Economics, Nanchang 330013, China Journal Article 2017 12 14 For many decision problems with uncertainty, triangular intuitionistic fuzzy number is a useful tool in expressing ill-known quantities. This paper develops a novel decision method based on zero-sum game for multiple attribute decision making problems where the attribute values take the form of triangular intuitionistic fuzzy numbers and the attribute weights are unknown. First, a new value index is defined for triangular intuitionistic fuzzy numbers on the basis of the centroid. Thereby, a new ranking approach is presented for comparing triangular intuitionistic fuzzy numbers. We formulate a multiple attribute decision making problem as a two-person zero-sum game with payoffs of triangular intuitionistic fuzzy numbers. Then, following the new ranking approach, the fuzzy matrix game is converted as a pair of crisp linear programming models, and the optimal strategies are objectively derived by solving such models. Therefore, the ranking order of alternatives is determined by the expected scores of alternatives. An example of video monitoring system selection is demonstrated to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed methodology. https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4648_daf23e3b6bfac37b93060d338d1358e8.pdf

Gaber Computer Science Department, Universite de Technologie de Belfort Montbeliard, Rue Thierry Mieg, 90010 Belfort, France P. Lorenz Computer Science Department, IUT, University of Haute Alsace, Colmar, France Journal Article 2017 01 14 This paper gives a decentralized approach to the problem of failure prognosis in the framework of fuzzy discrete event systems (FDES). A notion of co-predictability is formalized for decentralized prognosis of FDESs, where several local agents with fuzzy observability rather than crisp observability are used in the prognosis task. An FDES is said to be co-predictable if each faulty event can be predicted prior to its occurrence by at least one local agent using the observability of fuzzy events. The verification of the decentralized predictability is performed by constructing a fuzzy co-verifier from a given FDES. The complexity of the fuzzy co-verifier is polynomial with respect to the FDES being predicted, and is exponential with respect to the number of the local prognosis agents. Then, a necessary and sufficient condition for the co-predictability of FDESs is given. In addition, we show that the proposed method may be used to deal with the decentralized prognosis for both FDESs and crisp DESs. Finally, to illustrate the effectiveness of the approach, some examples are provided. https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4650_1ce8ab4640284f082ad9c427c7cac04a.pdf

In the fuzzy multi-objective linear program, all the objective coefficients, technological coefficients and resources are trapezoidal fuzzy numbers (TrFNs). An order relationship for TrFNs is introduced by using the interval expectation of TrFNs. In the first stage, the fuzzy multi-objective linear program with TrFNs is transformed into an interval multi-objective linear program according to the order relationship of TrFNs. Combining the ranking order relation between intervals with the satisfactory crisp equivalent forms of interval inequality relations, the interval multi-objective linear program is further transformed into a crisp multi-objective linear program. In the second stage, the positive and negative ideal solutions are calculated as well as the closeness degrees from the positive ideal solution to all objectives on the basis of the TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution). Then, using the closeness degrees, we convert the crisp multi-objective linear program into mono-objective program to solve. The proposed method is not only mathematically rigorous, but also can adequately consider the acceptance degree of decision maker that the fuzzy constraints may be violated. The other possible cases of the fuzzy multi-objective linear program are also discussed. The proposed method is illustrated by means of a project portfolio selection problem. https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4651_50e95720bca9b0d95d2066979cdfa1d5.pdf

Sharma Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, India Journal Article 2017 08 14 This article formulates a new technique for behavior analysis of systems through fuzzy Kolmogorov's differential equations and Particle Swarm Optimization. For handling the uncertainty in data, differential equations have been formulated by Markov modeling of system in fuzzy environment. First solution of these derived fuzzy Kolmogorov's differential equations has been found by Runge-Kutta fourth order method and thereafter the solution has been improved by Particle Swarm Optimization. Fuzzy availability is estimated in its transient as well as steady states. Sensitivity analysis has also been done to find the relative importance of a particular component of the system. Butter oil processing plant as an industrial system has been studied as a case for application of the proposed approach. https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4652_2b384bd61bf038f5800625a429428280.pdf

Let \$(L,*,varepsilon)\$ be a<br />commutative unital quantale and let \$otimes\$ be a binary operation<br />on \$L\$ which is distributive over nonempty subsets. The quadruple<br />\$(L,*,otimes,varepsilon)\$ is called a generalized GL-monoid if<br />\$(L,*,varepsilon)\$ is a commutative unital quantale and the operation \$*\$ is<br />\$otimes\$-semi-distributive. For generalized GL-monoid \$L\$ as the<br />truth value table, we systematically propose the stratified<br />\$L\$-generalized convergence spaces based on stratified \$L\$-filters,<br />which makes various existing lattice-valued convergence spaces as<br />special cases. For \$L\$ being a commutative unital quantale, we<br />define a fuzzy Scott convergence structure on \$L\$-fuzzy dcpos and<br />use it to induce a stratified \$L\$-topology. This is the inducing way<br />to the definition of quantale-valued fuzzy Scott topology, which<br />seems an appropriate way by some results. https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_4653_f35a750118ba0d313c54fcda469befe8.pdf
