A netting method for clustering-simplified neutrosophic information
To simplify existing clustering algorithms of simplified neutrosophic sets (NSs) (including single-valued NSs and interval NSs), the paper proposes a netting method for clustering-simplified neutrosophic data based on new association coefficients of simplified NSs. In the clustering algorithms, we firstly present new association coefficients between simplified NSs, including an association coefficient between single-valued NSs and an association coefficient between interval NSs. Then, a netting clustering method is presented based on the association coefficient matrix of simplified NSs to cluster simplified neutrosophic data. Finally, an actual example is provided to illustrate the effectiveness and rationality of the proposed netting clustering method under a simplified neutrosophic environment.
