A time-average fuzzy reward criterion in fuzzy decision processes. (English) Zbl 0951.90056

Summary: The optimization problem of long-run time-average fuzzy rewards in multi-stage decision processes with fuzzy transitions is discussed. The rewards are estimated by a fuzzy expectation, which is defined by possibility measures generated by fuzzy goals and \(t\)-norms. An optimal policy and an optimal payoff are given for the optimization problem.
