    Fusion of Infrared and Visible Images Using Fuzzy Based Siamese Convolutional Network

    Kanika Bhalla1, Deepika Koundal2,*, Surbhi Bhatia3, Mohammad Khalid Imam Rahmani4, Muhammad Tahir4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.70, No.3, pp. 5503-5518, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.021125

    Abstract Traditional techniques based on image fusion are arduous in integrating complementary or heterogeneous infrared (IR)/visible (VS) images. Dissimilarities in various kind of features in these images are vital to preserve in the single fused image. Hence, simultaneous preservation of both the aspects at the same time is a challenging task. However, most of the existing methods utilize the manual extraction of features; and manual complicated designing of fusion rules resulted in a blurry artifact in the fused image. Therefore, this study has proposed a hybrid algorithm for the integration of multi-features among two heterogeneous images.… More >

    Medical Waste Treatment Station Selection Based on Linguistic q-Rung Orthopair Fuzzy Numbers

    Jie Ling1,2, Xinmei Li1,2, Mingwei Lin1,2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.129, No.1, pp. 117-148, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2021.016356

    Abstract During the COVID-19 outbreak, the use of single-use medical supplies increased significantly. It is essential to select suitable sites for establishing medical waste treatment stations. It is a big challenge to solve the medical waste treatment station selection problem due to some conflicting factors. This paper proposes a multi-attribute decision-making (MADM) method based on the partitioned Maclaurin symmetric mean (PMSM) operator. For the medical waste treatment station selection problem, the factors or attributes (these two terms can be interchanged.) in the same clusters are closely related, and the attributes in different clusters have no relationships.… More >

    An Approach Using Fuzzy Sets and Boosting Techniques to Predict Liver Disease

    Pushpendra Kumar1,2,*, Ramjeevan Singh Thakur3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.68, No.3, pp. 3513-3529, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.016957

    Abstract The aim of this research is to develop a mechanism to help medical practitioners predict and diagnose liver disease. Several systems have been proposed to help medical experts by diminishing error and increasing accuracy in diagnosing and predicting diseases. Among many existing methods, a few have considered the class imbalance issues of liver disorder datasets. As all the samples of liver disorder datasets are not useful, they do not contribute to learning about classifiers. A few samples might be redundant, which can increase the computational cost and affect the performance of the classifier. In this… More >

    Spherical Linear Diophantine Fuzzy Sets with Modeling Uncertainties in MCDM

    Muhammad Riaz1, Masooma Raza Hashmi1, Dragan Pamucar2, Yuming Chu3,4,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.126, No.3, pp. 1125-1164, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2021.013699

    Abstract The existing concepts of picture fuzzy sets (PFS), spherical fuzzy sets (SFSs), T-spherical fuzzy sets (T-SFSs) and neutrosophic sets (NSs) have numerous applications in decision-making problems, but they have various strict limitations for their satisfaction, dissatisfaction, abstain or refusal grades. To relax these strict constraints, we introduce the concept of spherical linear Diophantine fuzzy sets (SLDFSs) with the inclusion of reference or control parameters. A SLDFS with parameterizations process is very helpful for modeling uncertainties in the multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) process. SLDFSs can classify a physical system with the help of reference parameters. We… More >

    Power Aggregation Operators and Similarity Measures Based on Improved Intuitionistic Hesitant Fuzzy Sets and their Applications to Multiple Attribute Decision Making

    Tahir Mahmood1, Wajid Ali1, Zeeshan Ali1, Ronnason Chinram2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.126, No.3, pp. 1165-1187, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2021.014393

    Abstract Intuitionistic hesitant fuzzy set (IHFS) is a mixture of two separated notions called intuitionistic fuzzy set (IFS) and hesitant fuzzy set (HFS), as an important technique to cope with uncertain and awkward information in realistic decision issues. IHFS contains the grades of truth and falsity in the form of the subset of the unit interval. The notion of IHFS was defined by many scholars with different conditions, which contain several weaknesses. Here, keeping in view the problems of already defined IHFSs, we will define IHFS in another way so that it becomes compatible with other… More >
