LPRs enable decision makers to express preferences by pair-wise comparisons in qualitative setting. The fundamental aspect of LPRs is to measure the degrees of consistency when applying them in decision-making. The model of EHFLTSs introduced in Chap. 2 is an effective technique to represent uncertainty in QDM problems. Based on EHFLTSs, this chapter focuses on the following two aspects.
