Abstract

In 1999, Molodtsov introduced the concept of soft set theory as a general mathematical tool for dealing with uncertainty. Alkhazaleh and Salleh (2011) define the concept of soft expert sets where the user can know the opinion of all experts in one model and give an application of this concept in decision making problem. So in this paper, we generalize the concept of a soft expert set to fuzzy soft expert set, which will be more effective and useful. We also define its basic operations, namely complement, union, intersection, AND and OR. We give an application of this concept in decision making problem. Finally, we study a mapping on fuzzy soft expert classes and its properties.
