Abstract

The paper aims to give some new kinds of operational laws named as neutrality addition and scalar multiplication for the pairs of linguistic interval-valued intuitionistic neutrosophic fuzzy number. The main idea behind these operations is to include the linguistic interval-valued intuitionistic neutrosophic fuzzy number of the decision-maker and score function. We define the linguistic interval-valued intuitionistic neutrosophic fuzzy number and operational laws. We introduce the three geometric operators including, linguistic interval-valued intuitionistic neutrosophic fuzzy weighted geometric operator, linguistic interval-valued intuitionistic neutrosophic fuzzy ordered weighted geometric operator and linguistic interval-valued intuitionistic neutrosophic fuzzy weighted hybrid geometric operatorl. Finally, a multiattribute group decision-making approach based on the proposed operators is presented and investigated with numerous numerical examples.
