With respect to the problems of aggregation about group experts' information and dynamic decision in DEMATEL (decision making trial and evaluation laboratory), a dynamic DEMATEL group expert decision-making method on intuitionistic fuzzy number (IFN) is presented. Firstly using IFN instead of original point estimates to reflect the experts' preference, the group experts' information are integrated horizontally at each period. Then the aggregation information at different periods are aggregated vertically again by dynamic intuitionistic fuzzy weighted averaging (DIFWA) operator so as to obtain the dynamic intuitionistic fuzzy DEMATEL total relation matrix. Thirdly, through the analysis of center and reason degree, the positions of the various factors in the system are clear and definite, and the inner structure of system has been revealed. Finally, the feasibility and practicability of the proposed method is shown through an illustrative example of a process of course selection in a school.

    Fuzzy Logic is based on the idea that in fuzzy sets each element in the set can assume a value from 0 to 1, not only 0 or 1, as in crisp set theory. The degree of membership function is defined as the gradation in the extent to which an element is belonging to the relevant sets. Optimizing the...

    Abstract??One of the major drawbacks of the existing fuzzy time series forecasting models is the fact that they only provide a single-point forecasted value just like the output of the traditional time series methods. Hence, they cannot provide a decision analyst more useful information. The aim...

    In this paper, by using r-level sets, we give a kind of representation of a discrete fuzzy number. As an application of the above result, we show that the usual addition of two discrete fuzzy numbers does not preserve the closeness of the operation (at this point, discrete fuzzy numbers do not...
