Intuitionistic Multi Fuzzy Soft Set and its Application in Decision Making
Soft set theory initiated by Molodtsov in 1999 has been emerging as a generic mathematical tool for dealing with uncertainty. A noticeable progress is found concerning the practical use of soft set in decision making problems. This paper introduces the concept of intuitionistic multi fuzzy soft set (IMFSS) by combining the intuitionistic multi fuzzy set (IMFS) and soft set models. Then an algorithmic approach is presented by using induced fuzzy soft set and level soft set for dealing with decision making problem based on IMFSS. Finally the proposed algorithm has also been illustrated through a numerical example.
