Abstract: Some researches have already developed fuzzy decision making theoretical algorithms, but there are only a few medical fields of their applications. We thus make a trial of adopting the Yager decision making algorithm to extract the optimal medicine from a collection of drugs that can be given to a patient to cure him of an illness. The choice of the most efficacious remedy is based on clinical symptoms typical of the considered morbid unit.
Subject: Mathematics\General
