Note on “symmetric triangular approximations of fuzzy numbers under a general condition and properties”

  • 141 Accesses

Abstract

We show by a counterexample that Theorem 2 in Ban, Coroianu [Soft Computing (2016) 20:1249-1261] is not always the symmetric triangular fuzzy number nearest to a given fuzzy number. In addition, a corrected version is provided.
