Neutrosophic Cognitive Maps for Situation Analysis
Keywords:Fuzzy logic, Fuzzy Cognitive Maps, Neutrosophy, Neutrosophic Cognitive Maps, Situation Analysis, Crime in Nigeria
There are various factors which lead to the criminal behaviour in humans. Prominent re-searchers monitoring the situation of crime in Nigeria cite poverty, unemployment, family-breakdown, bribing & corruption,lack of co-operation from public and negative perception of police to be the major causesbehind criminal behaviour.The factors likeunderemployment, inadequateequipment, NGOs are not taken into accountby the researchersbecause theseare considered to beindeterminate.To show how these indeterminate factors are actually related to crime in Nigeria we model the situation mathe-matically using FCMs and NCMs.The work also shows how efficient is the technique of Neutrosophic Cognitive Maps (NCM) against Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCM) to deal with the uncertainties and inde-terminacyinSituationAnalysis.The obtained results are interpreted which demonstrate the im-portance of indeterminate factors in analysing the situation of crime in Nigeria. This shows how inde-terminate factors when taken into consideration could enhance the accuracy and efficiency of mathe-matical models using the concept of Neutrosophic Cognitive Maps.
