Comments on crucial and unsolved problems on Atanassov’s intuitionistic fuzzy sets
- 100 Downloads
In the paper Crucial and unsolved problems on Atanassov’s intuitionistic fuzzy sets, D.-F. Li pointed out that some kind of definitions of operations over Atanassov’s intuitionistic fuzzy sets are incorrect. We can see that, near 30 years after the first Atanassov’s papers, there exist some misunderstandings related not only on the name, but also on the basic operations on IFSs. Those misunderstandings concern, this time, on the operations of the sum and product. Li also casts doubt the equivalence of the intuitionistic fuzzy sets and the interval-valued fuzzy sets. In this paper, the Li’s reasoning is presented and commented.
