Group decision-making based on bipolar neutrosophic fuzzy prioritized muirhead mean weighted averaging operator

Abstract

In this paper, the prioritized muirhead mean aggregation operations are used to constructing some bipolar neutrosophic fuzzy (BNF) operators, i.e., BNF prioritized muirhead mean weighted averaging, BNF prioritized muirhead mean ordered weighted averaging, BNF prioritized muirhead mean hybrid weighted averaging, BNF prioritized muirhead mean weighted geometric, BNF prioritized muirhead mean ordered weighted geometric and BNF prioritized muirhead mean hybrid weighted geometric operators have been proposed. Further, a multi-attribute decision-making technique is developed and the proposed aggregation operators are used. Finally, a numerical methodology for execution of the proposed system is introduced.
