New transitivity of Atanassov’s intuitionistic fuzzy sets in a decision making model

Barbara Pękala, Piotr Grochowalski, Eulalia Szmidt

Atanassov’s intuitionistic fuzzy sets and especially his intuitionistic fuzzy relations are tools that make it possible to model effectively imperfect information that we meet in many real-life situations. In this paper, we discuss the new concepts of the transitivity problem of Atanassov’s intuitionistic fuzzy relations in an epistemic aspect. The transitivity property reflects the consistency of a preference relation. Therefore, transitivity is important from the point of view of real problems appearing, e.g., in group decision making in preference procedures. We propose a new type of optimistic and pessimistic transitivity among the alternatives (options) considered and their use in the procedure of ranking the alternatives in a group decision-making problem.
