Modified Szmidt and Kacprzyk’s Intuitionistic Fuzzy Distances and their Applications in Decision-making
Keywords:Decision-making, Distance measure, Intuitionistic fuzzy set, Pattern recognition, Medical diagnosis
Intuitionistic fuzzy models are significant in resolving decision-making. Distance measures under intuitionistic fuzzy environment are reliable techniques deployed to express the application of IFSs. Some approaches of estimating distances between IFSs have been explored by Szmidt and Kacprzyk, where the complete parameters of IFSs are considered. Albeit, the distance operators lack reliability because of certain setbacks. In this paper, we modified Szmidt and Kacprzyk's distance operators between IFSs to enhance reliability in terms of applications. Some theorems are given to substantiate the validity of the modified intuitionistic fuzzy distance operators. Futhermore, decision-making cases of pattern recognition and disease identification are discussed using the Szmidt and Kacprzyk's distances and their improved versions where information are represented in intuitionistic fuzzy pairs. From the study, it is observed that the modified Szmidt and Kacprzyk's distance operators between IFSs yield better results compare to the Szmidt and Kacprzyk's distance operators between IFSs.
