[en] In this study, we propose new distance measures for dual hesitant fuzzy sets (DHFSs) in terms of the mean, standard deviation of dual hesitant fuzzy elements (DHFEs), respectively, which overcome some drawbacks of the existing distance measures. Meanwhile, we extend DHFS to its higher order type and refer to it as the higher order dual hesitant fuzzy set (HODHFS). HODHFS is the actual extension of DHFS that enables us to define the membership and non-membership of a given element in terms of several possible generalized type of fuzzy sets (G-Type FSs). The rationale behind HODHFS can be seen in the case that the decision makers are not satisfied by providing exact values for the membership degrees and the non-membership degrees. To indicate HODHFSs have a good performance in decision making, we introduce several distance measures for HODHFSs based on our proposed new distance for dual hesitant fuzzy sets. Finally, we practice our proposed measures for HODHFSs in multi-attribute decision making illustrating their applicability and availability.
[en] The article presents a proposal for a combined application of fuzzy logic and genetic algorithms to control the procurement process in the enterprise. The approach presented in this paper draws particular attention to the impact of external random factors in the form of demand and lead time uncertainty. The model uses time-variable membership function parameters in a dynamic fashion to describe the modelled output fuzzy (sets) values. An additional element is the use of genetic algorithms for optimisation of fuzzy rule base in the proposed method. The approach presented in this paper was veryfied according to four criteria based on a computer simulation performed on the basis of the actual data from an enterprise. (Author)
[en] The similarities and differences between the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), A. Garrett Lisi's E8, M.S. El Naschie's Fuzzy E∞ Kaehler manifolds, and the author's Hyperflavor E12 are explored.
[en] Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space. In this paper we provide some observations about the fuzzy metric space in the sense of Kramosil and Michalek $(Y,N,/wedge)$, where $Y$ is the set of non-negative real numbers $[0,/infty[$ and $N(x,y,t)=1$ if $d(x,y)/leq t$ and $N(x,y,t)=0$ if $d(x,y)/geq t$.

[en] In this paper a fuzzy logistic equation with alley effect is introduced by considering some parameter as fuzzy numbers. Due to presence of the fuzzy number the corresponding differential equation in logistic equation model with alley effect becomes fuzzy differential equation. Considering generalized Hukuhara derivative approach the fuzzy logistic equation converted to system of two crisp differential equations. We obtain the conditions of stability criterion for different cases. Different numerical examples are given to support our work.
[en] This paper proposes a new algorithm, named establishing neuro-fuzzy system (ENFS), to identify dynamic characteristics of smart dampers such as magnetorheological (MR) and electrorheological (ER) dampers. In the ENFS, data clustering is performed based on the proposed algorithm named partitioning data space (PDS). Firstly, the PDS builds data clusters in joint input–output data space with appropriate constraints. The role of these constraints is to create reasonable data distribution in clusters. The ENFS then uses these clusters to perform the following tasks. Firstly, the fuzzy sets expressing characteristics of data clusters are established. The structure of the fuzzy sets is adjusted to be suitable for features of the data set. Secondly, an appropriate structure of neuro-fuzzy (NF) expressed by an optimal number of labeled data clusters and the fuzzy-set groups is determined. After the ENFS is introduced, its effectiveness is evaluated by a prediction-error-comparative work between the proposed method and some other methods in identifying numerical data sets such as ‘daily data of stock A’, or in identifying a function. The ENFS is then applied to identify damping force characteristics of the smart dampers. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of the ENFS in identifying the damping forces of the smart dampers, the prediction errors are presented by comparing with experimental results. (paper)
[en] This study presents a new approach for expert opinion elicitation. The need to work with rare events and limited data is severe accident have led analysts to use expert opinions extensively. Unlike the conventional approaches using point-valued probabilities, the study proposes the concept of fuzzy probability to represent expert opinion. The use of fuzzy probability has an advantage over the conventional approach when an expert's judgment is used under limited data and imprecise knowledge. The study demonstrates a method of combining fuzzy probabilities in a manner consistent with the Distempers-Shaper's Theory (DDT). The propagation of fuzzy probabilities through a system is also introduced
