From Neural Computing & Applications comes a paper on the Multi-criteria decision-making method based on single-valued neutrosophic linguistic Maclaurin symmetric mean operators. This paper is free to read (link) for approximately the next 30 days of this posting.
This paper investigates a wide range of generalized Maclaurin symmetric mean (MSM) aggregation operators, such as the generalized arithmetic MSM and the generalized geometric MSM, whose predominant characteristic is capturing the interrelationships among multi-input arguments. The single-valued neutrosophic linguistic set plays an essential role in decision making, which can serve as an extension of either a linguistic term set or a single-valued neutrosophic set. This study centers on multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) issues in which criteria are weighed differently and criteria values are expressed as single-valued neutrosophic linguistic numbers. Based on this foundation, we extend a series of MSM aggregation techniques under single-valued neutrosophic linguistic environments and propose procedures for solving MCDM problems. We also explore the influence of parameters on aggregation results. Finally, we provide a practical example and conduct a comparison analysis between the proposed approach and other existing methods in order to verify the proposed approach and demonstrate its validity.
