Original Paper


In this paper, we give a generalization of the Chebyshev type inequalities for Sugeno integral with respect to non-additive measures. The main results of this paper generalize most of the inequalities for Sugeno integral obtained by many researchers. Also, some conclusions are drawn and some problems for further investigations are given.
