Part of the Uncertainty and Operations Research book series (UOR)


Under the framework of decision matrix, this chapter focuses on GDM problems whose decision information takes the form of EHFLTSs. A general framework of multiple groups decision-making (MGDM) will be introduced at first for the problems with complex structure of groups. Then some specific MGDM approaches will be introduced based on information fusion of EHFLTSs.
