A BL-Algebra-Based Method for Fuzzy Screening


  • Enrico Fischetti Dipartimento di Informatica University of Salerno Italy


Type-2 fuzzy sets, BL-algebras, fuzzy screening


A fuzzy screening algorithm was introduced by Yager in 1993. In this paper a new approach based on type-2 fuzzy sets is illustrated to tackle screening problems. The method heavily relies on the properties of a suitable algebraic structure. The two algorithms are applied to the same case study and the results are compared.
