## On Distances and Similarity Measures between Two Interval Neutrosophic Sets

#### Sudip BHATTACHARYYA [1] , Bikas Koli ROY [2] , Pinaki MAJUMDAR [3]

An Interval Neutrosophic set (INS) is an instance of a Neutrosophic set and also an emerging tool for uncertain data processing in real scientific and engineering applications. In this paper, several distance and similarity measures between two Interval Neutrosophic sets have been discussed. Distances and similarities are very useful techniques to determine interacting segments in a data set. Here we have also shown an application of our similarity measures in solving a multicriteria decision making method based on INS’s. Finally, we take an illustrative example from [14] to apply the proposed decision making method. We use the distance as well as the similarity measures between each alternative and ideal alternative to form a ranking order and also to find the best alternative. We compare the obtained results with the existing result in [14] and also reveal the best distance and similarity measure to find the best alternative and also point out the best alternative.
