  • decision making with fuzzy information;
  • decision making, important scientific, social, and economic endeavor;
  • dealing with decision making under uncertainty - distinct difference, between a good decision and a good outcome;
  • fuzzy synthetic evaluation, and process of fuzzy synthesis - naturally accommodated using synthetic evaluation;
  • fuzzy ordering, decisions made - on basis of rank or ordinal ranking;
  • nontransitive ranking - and special notion of relativity;
  • multiobjective decision making;
  • posterior probabilities - based on imperfect information;
  • decision making under fuzzy states and fuzzy actions;
  • posterior probabilities - for fuzzy alternatives with fuzzy information
