We have defined Neutrosophic Over-/Under-/Off-Set and Logic for the first time in 1995 and published in 2007. During 1995-2016 we presented them to various national and international conferences and seminars. These new notions are totally different from other sets/logics/probabilities. We extended the neutrosophic set respectively to Neutrosophic Overset {when some neutrosophic component is > 1}, to Neutrosophic Underset {when some neutrosophic component is < 0}, and to Neutrosophic...

This papers proposes a reflexion on the concept of vagueness. We relate the different kinds of vagueness to relevant mathematical frameworks with particular emphasis on recent works on neutrosophic logic, Dezert-Smarandache theory, and rough sets. The different facets of vagueness are illustrated through a case study on Ambrosia artemisiifolia predictive cartography.

In this paper, the classic rule of combination in the Dezert-Smarandache theory is found to be not convergent with the number increase of evidential sources since it leaves out the denominator in the Dempster ’s rule. That is, it is a process of entropy productions. This means the final result of combination is more uncer tain, and can not give a good decision.

Current methods for evaluating the effects of human opinions in data fusion systems are often dependent on human testing (which is logistically hard and difficult to arrange for repeated tests of the same population). The alternative is to use hypothetical examples, which tend to be simplistic. To facilitate studies of data fusion architectures which integrate “soft” humangenerated decisions, we have used a simulator of subjective beliefs.

Digital Surface Models (DSMs) generated from satellite stereo imagery provide valuable but not comprehensive information for building change detection. Therefore, belief functions have been introduced to solve this problem by fusing DSM information with changes extracted from images. However, miss-detection can not be avoided if the DSMs are containing large region of wrong height values.

DSmT (Dezert-Smarandache Theory) is actually a natural extension of DST (Dempster-Shafer Evidence Theory) and Bayes Probability Theory, which can handle both uncertainty and contradiction efficiently. We present the inverse problem in DSmT and research on the existence of its unique exact solution. In particular, we adopt PSO (Particle Swarm Optimization) arithmetic to find an approximate solution if the inverse problem dose not have a unique exact solution.

Map reconstruction for autonomous mobile robots navigation needs to deal with uncertainties, imprecisions and even imperfections due to the limited sensors quality and knowledge acquisition. An improved fusion machine is proposed by replacing the classical conjunctive operator with T-norm operator in Dezert-Smarandache Theory (DSmT) framework for building grid map using noisy sonar measurements.

Electronic Support Measures consist of passive receivers which can identify emitters which, in turn, can be related to platforms that belong to 3 classes: Friend, Neutral, or Hostile. Decision makers prefer results presented in STANAG 1241 allegiance form, which adds 2 new classes: Assumed Friend, and Suspect. Dezert- Smarandache (DSm) theory is particularly suited to this problem, since it allows for intersections between the original 3 classes.

Situation assessment, which belongs to high level information fusion, plays an important role in military decision-making systems. In order to combine the fuzzy evidence in situation assessment, a novel approach based on Dezert-Smarandache theory(DSmT) is described in this paper. The model of fuzzy synthetic judgement is constructed to estimate the intension of force group. The characteristics of force group, including the speed, the distance and the direction, are mapped into fuzzy sets and...

This paper proposes the use of a peak tendency estimator (PTE) based on Dezert Smarandache Theory (DSmT) and fuzzy inference to overcome two inherent limitations of a recently proposed partial Haar dual adaptive filter (PHDAF) for sparse echo cancellation.

A new self-adaptive fusion algorithm based on DST and DSmT is proposed. In the new algorithm, part of the conflicting information is normalized according to DST, while the other part is processed by DSmT. A controlling factor is used to control the quantity of information dealt by the two different methods adaptively, which is a new method avoiding setting for the threshold of conflict. The simulation results indicate that the new self-adaptive fusion algorithm based on DST and DSmT can deal...

The aim of this paper is to propose an ontology framework for preselected sensors due to the sensor networks’ needs, regarding a specific task, such as the target’s threat recognition. The problem will be solved methodologically, taking into account particularly non-deterministic nature of functions assigning the concept and the relation sets into the concept and relation lexicon sets respectively and vice-versa. This may effectively enhance the efficiency of the information fusion...

In the context of Electronic Support Measures, the use of the Dempster-Shafer Theory is not flexible enough to obtain a clear evaluation of the state of allegiance for a detected target. With the new theory of plausible, paradoxical, and neutrosophic reasoning, the Dezert-Smarandache Theory, we are able to  get a clearer assessment. The current paper presents our research for these  cases.

In multi-sources information fusion, because of the diversity of evidences, especially the imperfect evidences, it’s difficult to get a satisfied result. To avoid and reduce the influence of the mistaken or conflicting information on the final precision of fusion, a pre-processor of evidence sources is proposed and proved.

Information acquired in map building presents characteristics of uncertainty, imprecision and even high conflict, especially in the course of building grid map using sonar. Here a new method of information fusion-DSmT (Dezert-Smarandache Theory) recently developed from DST and Bayesian theory was introduced to apply to managing and dealing with this uncertainty.

In this paper, Smarandache soft groupoids shortly (SS-groupoids) are introduced as a generalization of Smarandache Soft semigroups (SS-semigroups) . A Smarandache Soft groupoid is an approximated collection of Smarandache subgroupoids of a groupoid . Further, we introduced parameterized Smarandache groupoid and strong soft semigroup over a groupoid Smarandache soft ideals are presented in this paper. We also discussed some of their core and fundamental properties and other notions with...

Clustering plays an important role in data mining, pattern recognition, and machine learning. Then, single valued neutrosophic sets (SVNSs) are useful means to describe and handle indeterminate and inconsistent information, which fuzzy sets and intuitionistic fuzzy sets cannot describe and deal with.

When physician carries out the clinical survey of a patient with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) symptom to reach the initial evaluation/diagnosis of BPH symptom, the existing initial evaluation method of BPH based on the international prostate symptom score (I-PSS) usually use the objective evaluation/diagnosis method with crisp values without considering fuzzy information.

A rough set is a formal approximation of a crisp set which gives lower and upper approximation of original set to deal with uncertainties. The concept of neutrosophic set is a mathematical tool for handling imprecise, indeterministic and inconsistent data. In this paper, we introduce the concepts of neutrosophic rough Sets and investigate some of its properties. Further as the  characterisation of neutrosophic rough approximation operators, we introduce various notions of cut sets of...
