Abstract

Fuzzy decision making is the collection of single or multicriteria techniques aiming at selecting the best alternative in case of imprecise, incomplete, and vague data. This chapter reviews the fuzzy decision making literature and summarizes the review results by tabular and graphical illustrations. The classification is based on the new extensions of fuzzy sets: Intuitionistic, hesitant, and type-2 fuzzy sets. Later, the media publishing fuzzy decision making papers, journals, books, conferences, and societies are summarized. Finally, fuzzy decision making examples are given for ordinary, intuitionistic, hesitant, and type-2 fuzzy sets.
