Weighted minimum and maximum operations in fuzzy set theory. (English) Zbl 0605.03021
This short note comments on the interpretation of weighted minimum and maximum operations introduced in a previous paper [ibid. 36, 85-121 (1985; Zbl 0582.03040)] as medians, and corrects a misleading statement about it.
