A note on the super-additive and sub-additive transformations of aggregation functions: The multi-dimensional case

Fateme Kouchakinejad, Alexandra Šipošová (2017)


For an aggregation function A we know that it is bounded by A * and A * which are its super-additive and sub-additive transformations, respectively. Also, it is known that if A * is directionally convex, then A = A * and A * is linear; similarly, if A * is directionally concave, then A = A * and A * is linear. We generalize these results replacing the directional convexity and concavity conditions by the weaker assumptions of overrunning a super-additive function and underrunning a sub-additive function, respectively.

An inquiry-based method for Choquet integral-based aggregation of interface usability parameters

Miguel-Ángel Sicilia, Elena García Barriocanal, Tomasa Calvo (2003)


The concept of usability of man-machine interfaces is usually judged in terms of a number of aspects or attributes that are known to be subject to some rough correlations, and that are in many cases given different importance, depending on the context of use of the application. In consequence, the automation of judgment processes regarding the overall usability of concrete interfaces requires the design of aggregation operators that are capable of modeling approximate or ill-defined interactions...

Applications of contractive-like mapping principles to fuzzy equations

Juan J. Nieto, Rosana Rodríguez López (2006)

Revista Matemática Complutense

We recall a recent extension of the classical Banach fixed point theorem to partially ordered sets and justify its applicability to the study of the existence and uniqueness of solution for fuzzy and fuzzy differential equations. To this purpose, we analyze the validity of some properties relative to sequences of fuzzy sets and fuzzy functions.

Completely generalized nonlinear variational inclusions for fuzzy mappings

Nan-jing Huang (1999)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

In this paper, we introduce and study a new class of completely generalized nonlinear variational inclusions for fuzzy mappings and construct some new iterative algorithms. We prove the existence of solutions for this kind of completely generalized nonlinear variational inclusions and the convergence of iterative sequences generated by the algorithms.

Invariant approximation for fuzzy nonexpansive mappings

Ismat Beg, Mujahid Abbas (2011)

Mathematica Bohemica

We establish results on invariant approximation for fuzzy nonexpansive mappings defined on fuzzy metric spaces. As an application a result on the best approximation as a fixed point in a fuzzy normed space is obtained. We also define the strictly convex fuzzy normed space and obtain a necessary condition for the set of all t -best approximations to contain a fixed point of arbitrary mappings. A result regarding the existence of an invariant point for a pair of commuting mappings on a fuzzy metric...

Software cost estimation with fuzzy inputs: Fuzzy modelling and aggregation of cost drivers

Miguel-Ángel Sicilia, Juan-J. Cuadrado-Gallego, Javier Crespo, Elena García Barriocanal (2005)


Parametric software cost estimation models are well-known and widely used estimation tools, and several fuzzy extensions have been proposed to introduce a explicit handling of imprecision and uncertainty as part of them. Nonetheless, such extensions do not consider two basic facts that affect the inputs of software cost parametric models: cost drivers are often expressed through vague linguistic categories, and in many cases cost drivers are better expressed in terms of aggregations of second-level...
