Abstract

The objective of the paper ARE to introduce single-valued trapezoidal neutrosophic numbers(SVTrNNs), which is a special case of single-valued neutrosophic numbers and to develop a ranking method for ranking SVTrNNs. Some operational rules as well as cut sets of SVTrNNs have been introduced. The value and ambiguity indices of truth, indeterminacy, and falsity membership functions of SVTrNNs have been defined. A new ranking method has been proposed by using these two indices and applied the ranking method to multi attribute decision making problem in which the ratings of the alternatives over the attributes are expressed in terms of TrNFNs. Finally, an illustrative example has been provided to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the proposed approach.
