Generalized Measures of Fuzzy Entropy and their Properties

Authors: K.C. Deshmukh, P.G. Khot, Nikhil


In the present communication, we have proposed some new generalized measure of fuzzy entropy based upon real parameters, discussed their and desirable properties, and presented these measures graphically. An important property, that is, monotonicity of the proposed measures has also been studied.

Keywords: fuzzy numbers, fuzzy entropy, monotonicity, Characteristicfunction, Crisp set
