Summary

In the various challenging real-world problems, the observed values of the data are often imprecise or vague because of incomplete and/or non–obtainable information. In order to handle the impreciseness in the data, the uncertainty modeling plays a vital role that makes a simulation of the decision-making process of humans with incomplete or inaccurate data. Recently, research on uncertainty modeling is progressing rapidly and many essential and breakthrough studies have already been done. Fuzzy sets are the main tools to handle these uncertainties. Although this concept can handle incomplete information in various real-world issues, it cannot address all types of uncertainty such as indeterminate and inconsistent information. So, some extension of fuzzy sets such as intuitionistic fuzzy set, picture fuzzy set, Pythagorean fuzzy set, spherical fuzzy set, neutrosophic set, plithogenic set, and their generalizations have been proposed. 

The objective of this special issue is to compile new and recent developments in methodologies, techniques, and applications of fuzzy set and its extensions for various practical problems and demonstrate the challenging issues on these concepts. We welcome authors to present state-of-the-art and recent advancements in fuzzy set and its extensions techniques, methodologies, mixed approaches, and research directions pointing to unsolved issues.
