In this work, we introduce a new class of functions defined on the interval-valued setting. These functions extend classical OWA operators but allow for different weighting vectors to handle the lower bounds and the upper bounds of the considered intervals. As a consequence, the resulting functions need not be an interval-valued aggregation function, so we… (More)
In this work we construct linear orders between pairs of intervals by using aggregation functions. We apply these orders in a decision-making problem where the experts provide their opinions by means of interval-valued fuzzy sets.
In this work we introduce the concept of a fusion operator for type-2 fuzzy sets as a mapping that takes m functions from [0, 1] to [0, 1] and brings back a new function of the same type. We study in depth the properties of pointwise fusion operators and representable fusion operators. Finally, we study the union and intersection of type-2 fuzzy sets and we… (More)
Nanoparticles with prolonged residence time in bone constitute a valuable strategy for bone disease treatments. The aim of this work was to synthesise a simple nanoparticulate system exhibiting both anticancer and hydroxyapatite binding properties for potential bone cancer applications. The amphiphilic copolymer poly(γ-benzyl-glutamate)-block-poly(glutamic… (More)
