Picture fuzzy sets (PFSs) utilize the positive, neutral, negative and refusal membership degrees to describe the behaviours of decision-makers in more detail. In this article, we expound the application of extended TODIM based on cumulative prospect theory under picture fuzzy multiple attribute group decision making (MAGDM). In addition, we adopt Information Entropy, which is used to ascertain the weighting vector of attributes to improve the availability of the TODIM method. At last, we exercise the improved TODIM into a numerical case for super market location and testify the effectiveness of this new method by comparing its results with other methods’ results.

In this paper, the CODAS (Combinative Distance-based Assessment) is utilized to address some MAGDM issues by using picture 2-tuple linguistic numbers (P2TLNs). At first, some essential concepts of picture 2-tuple linguistic sets (P2TLSs) are briefly reviewed. Then, the CODAS method with P2TLNs is constructed and all calculating procedures are simply depicted. Eventually, an empirical application of green supplier selection has been offered to demonstrate this novel method and some comparative analysis between the CODAS method with P2TLNs and several methods are also made to confirm the merits of the developed method.

Heronian mean (HM) has the characteristic of capturing the correlations of the aggregated arguments and the neutrosophic set can express the incomplete, indeterminate and inconsistent information, in this paper, we applied the Heronian mean to the neutrosophic set, and proposed some Heronian mean operators. Firstly, we presented some operational laws and their properties of single valued neutrosophic numbers (SVNNs), and analyzed the shortcomings of the existing weighted HM operators which have not idempotency, then we propose the improved generalized weighted Heronian mean (IGWHM) operator and improved generalized weighted geometric Heronian mean (IGWGHM) operator based on crisp numbers, and prove that they can satisfy some desirable properties, such as reducibility, idempotency, monotonicity and boundedness Further, we proposed the single valued neutrosophic number improved generalized weighted Heronian mean (NNIGWHM) operator and single valued the neutrosophic number improved generalized weighted geometric Heronian mean (NNIGWGHM) operator, and some desirable properties and special cases of them are discussed. Moreover, with respect to multiple attribute group decision making (MAGDM) problems in which attribute values take the form of SVNNs, the decision making approaches based on the proposed operators are developed. Finally, an application example has been given to show the decision making steps and to discuss the influence of different parameter values on the decision-making results.
