The main contributions of this paper are shown as: (1) we define dual hesitant fuzzy t-norms and t-conorms; (2) based on dual hesitant fuzzy t-norms and t-conorms, we introduce a family of prioritized dual hesitant fuzzy operators to aggregate dual hesitant fuzzy information of alternatives with regard to the prioritized attributes; (3) we propose a method to handle the dual hesitant fuzzy multi-attribute decision making (MADM) problems with prioritized attributes; (4) we show that compared to other relevant studies, the developed prioritized aggregation operators take full advantage of the given decision information, avoid the loss of original information, and thus yield better final decision results.
