New similarity measure and distance measure for Pythagorean fuzzy set

Pythagorean fuzzy set (PFS), disposing the indeterminacy portrayed by membership and non-membership, is a more viable and effective means to seize indeterminacy. Due to the defects of existing Pythagorean fuzzy similarity measures or distance …

Dijkstra algorithm for shortest path problem under interval-valued Pythagorean fuzzy environment

Pythagorean fuzzy set as an extension of fuzzy set has been presented to handle the uncertainty in real-world decision-making problems. In this work, we formulate a shortest path (SP) problem in an interval-valued Pythagorean fuzzy environment.
