An Approach to Dual Hesitant Fuzzy Soft Set Based on Decision Making

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


By combining the dual hesitant fuzzy set and soft set models, the purpose of this paper is to introduce the concept of dual hesitant fuzzy soft sets. Then, we present an adjustable approach to dual hesitant fuzzy soft sets based on decision making and some numerical examples are provided to illustrate the developed approach.
