Extended Bipolar Fuzzy (Directed) Hypergraphs to m-Polar Information

Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 390)


An m-polar fuzzy set is a useful tool to solve real-world problems that involve multi-agents, multi-attributes, multi-objects, multi-indexes, and multipolar information. In this chapter, we present the notions of regular m-polar fuzzy hypergraphs and totally regular m-polar fuzzy hypergraphs. We discuss applications of m-polar fuzzy hypergraphs in decision-making problems. Furthermore, we discuss the notion of m-polar fuzzy directed hypergraphs and depict certain operations on them. We also describe an application of m-polar fuzzy directed hypergraphs in business strategy.
