Distance Measures for Interval-Valued Intuitionistic Hesitant Fuzzy Sets

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


In order to effectively deal with some decision-making problems on interval-valued intuitionistic hesitant fuzzy environment, some distance measures for interval-valued intuitionistic hesitant fuzzy sets are defined, and corresponding properties are given and proved. The effectiveness and practicality of the distance measures are verified finally.
