Abstract

Fuzzy, rough, and soft sets are different mathematical tools mainly developed to deal with uncertainty. Combining these theories has a wide range of applications in decision analysis. In this paper, we defined a generalized Z-fuzzy soft -covering-based rough matrices. Some algebraic properties are explored for this newly constructed matrix. The main aim of this paper is to propose a novel MAGDM model using generalized Z-fuzzy soft -covering-based rough matrices. A MAGDM algorithm based on the AHP method is created to recruit the best candidate for an assistant professor job in an institute, and a numerical example is presented to demonstrate the created method.
