Granular Computing Based on q-Rung Picture Fuzzy Hypergraphs

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


In this chapter, we present q-rung picture fuzzy hypergraphs and illustrate the formation of granular structures using q-rung picture fuzzy hypergraphs and level hypergraphs. Moreover, we define q-rung picture fuzzy equivalence relations and its’ associated q-rung picture fuzzy hierarchical quotient space structures. We also present an arithmetic example in order to demonstrate the benefits and validity of this model. This chapter is due to [19, 24].
