A comparative assessment of measures of similarity of fuzzy values. (English) Zbl 0795.04007

There are several measures of similarity of fuzzy values: one based on union and intersection, one based on maximum difference, and one based on the difference as well as the sum of the corresponding grade of membership. Some common properties and some particular properties of the three measures are investigated.
