On modelling fuzzy preference relations

  • Sergei Ovchinnikov
3. Fuzzy Sets
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 521)


A theory of a fuzzy weak preference relation based on multiple-valued logic is developed. The transitivity property of fuzzy strict preference and indifference relations associated with a fuzzy weak preference relation is established.
