From the reviews:

“This book summarizes the basic principles of credibilistic programming and its applications to fuzzy portfolio selection problems. … used as a textbook at the graduate level and also as a reference guide for mathematicians who are interested in credibility theory in a fuzzy environment.” (Rόbert Fullér, Mathematical Reviews, November, 2013)

“The author of this book explores a specialized fuzzy measure and its application for developing solutions to several optimization problems. … this book is inspirational and motivational. It is also a concise, well-written display of definitions, characterizations, and applications for real-life decision making.” (Goran Trajkovski, Computing Reviews, August, 2013)
