    This paper introduces a new intuitionistic fuzzy multicriteria decision making method of evaluation based on degree of inclusion of two intuitionistic fuzzy sets. We have called the new technique TOPIIS (Technique to Order Preference by Inclusion of Ideal Solution). The technique is applied to develop an effective employee performance appraisal

    On the first place antitonicity in QL-implications

    To obtain a demanded fuzzy implication in fuzzy systems, a number of desired properties have been proposed, among which the first place antitonicity, the second place isotonicity and the boundary conditions are the most important ones. The three classes of fuzzy implications derived from the implication in binary logic, S-, R- and QL-implications all satisfy the second place isotonicity and the boundary conditions. However, not all the QL-implications satisfy the first place antitonicity as S- and R-implications do. In this paper we study the QL-implications satisfying the first place antitonicity. First we establish the relationship between the first place antitonicity and other required properties of QL-implications. Second we work on the conditions under which a QL-implication generated by different combinations of a t-conorm S, a t-norm T and a strong fuzzy negation N satisfy the first place antitonicity, especially in the cases that both S and T are continuous. We further investigate the interrelationships between S- and R-implications generated by left-continuous t-norms on one hand and QL-implications satisfying the first place antitonicity on the other

    Use of idempotent functions in the aggregation of different filters for noise removal

    Get PDF
    The majority of existing denoising algorithms obtain good results for a specific noise model, and when it is known previously. Nonetheless, there is a lack in denoising algorithms that can deal with any unknown noisy images. Therefore, in this paper, we study the use of aggregation functions for denoising purposes, where the noise model is not necessary known in advance; and how these functions affect the visual and quantitative results of the resultant images

    Consensus image method for unknown noise removal

    Noise removal has been, and it is nowadays, an important task in computer vision. Usually, it is a previous task preceding other tasks, as segmentation or reconstruction. However, for most existing denoising algorithms the noise model has to be known in advance. In this paper, we introduce a new approach based on consensus to deal with unknown noise models. To do this, different filtered images are obtained, then combined using multifuzzy sets and averaging aggregation functions. The final decision is made by using a penalty function to deliver the compromised image. Results show that this approach is consistent and provides a good compromise between filters.This work is supported by the European Commission under Contract No. 238819 (MIBISOC Marie Curie ITN). H.

    This book provides a timely overview of topics in fuzzy mathematics. It lays the foundation for further research and applications in a broad range of areas. It contains break-through analysis on how results from the many variations and extensions of fuzzy set theory can be obtained from known results of traditional fuzzy set theory. The book contains not only theoretical results, but a wide range of applications in areas such as decision analysis, optimal allocation in possibilistics and mixed models, pattern classification, credibility measures, algorithms for modeling uncertain data, and numerical methods for solving fuzzy linear systems. The book offers an excellent reference for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in applied and theoretical fuzzy mathematics. Researchers and referees in fuzzy set theory will find the book to be of extreme value
