Generalized Z-fuzzy soft β-covering based rough matrices and its application to MAGDM problem based on AHP method
Fuzzy, rough, and soft sets are different mathematical tools mainly developed to deal with uncertainty. Combining these theories has a wide range of applications in decision analysis. In this paper, we defined a generalized Z-fuzzy soft -covering-based rough matrices. Some algebraic properties are explored for this newly constructed matrix. The main aim of this paper is to propose a novel MAGDM model using generalized Z-fuzzy soft -covering-based rough matrices. A MAGDM algorithm based on the AHP method is created to recruit the best candidate for an assistant professor job in an institute, and a numerical example is presented to demonstrate the created method.
