Dual Hesitant Fuzzy Soft Set and Its Properties

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 367)


The soft set theory, originally proposed by Molodtsov, can be used as a general mathematical tool for dealing with uncertainty. By combining the dual hesitant fuzzy set and soft set models, we introduce the concept of dual hesitant fuzzy soft sets. Further some operations on the dual hesitant fuzzy soft sets are investigated, such as complement operation, “AND” and “OR” operations, sum and product operations.
