Distance And Similarity Measures For Soft Sets
AbstractIn Ref. 7, the authors use matrix representation-based distances of soft sets to introduce matching function and distance-based similarity measures. We first give counterexamples to show that their Definition 2.7 and Lemma 3.5(3) contain errors, then improve their Lemma 4.4 making it a corollary of our result. The fundamental assumption of Ref. 7 has been shown to be flawed. This motivates us to introduce set operations-based measures. We present a case (Example 6.7) where Majumdar-Samanta similarity measure produces an erroneous result but the measure proposed here decides correctly. Several properties of the new measures have been presented and finally the new similarity measures have been applied to the problem of financial diagnosis of firms.
