New Correlation Coefficients between Linguistic Neutrosophic Numbers and Their Group Decision Making Method

Yanfei Zhu [1] , Wenhua Cui [2] , Jun Ye [3]


Since linguistic neutrosophic numbers (LNNs) are depicted independently by the truth, indeterminacy, and falsity linguistic variables in indeterminate and inconsistent linguistic environment, they are very fit for human thinking and expressing habits to judgments of complex objects in real life world. Then the correlation coefficient is a critical mathematical tool in pattern recognition and decision making science, but the related research was rarely involved in LNN setting. Hence, this work first proposes two new correlation coefficients of LNNs based on the correlation and information energy of LNNs as the complement/extension of our previous work, and then develops a multiple criteria group decision making (MCGDM) method based on the proposed correlation coefficients in LNN setting. Lastly, a decision making example is provided to illustrate the applicability of the developed method. By comparison with the MCGDM methods regarding the existing correlation coefficients based on the maximum and minimum operations of LNNs, the decision results indicate the effectiveness of the developed MCGDM approach. Hence, the proposed approach provides another new way for linguistic neutrosophic decision making problems.
