Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) is a very common and useful method for solving multi-criteria decision making problems in certain and uncertain environments. Single valued neutrosophic hesitant fuzzy set (SVNHFS) and interval neutrosophic hesitant fuzzy set (INHFS) are developed on the integration of neutrosophic set and hesitant fuzzy set. In this paper, we extend TOPSIS method for multi-attribute decision making based on single valued neutrosophic hesitant fuzzy set and interval neutrosophic hesitant fuzzy set. Furthermore, we assume that the attribute weights are known, incompletely known or completely unknown. We establish two optimization models for SVNHFS and INHFS with the help of maximum deviation method. Finally, we provide two numerical examples to validate the proposed approach.

Neutrosophic hesitant fuzzy set (NHFS) is a convincing tool that deals with uncertain information. In this paper, we propose an NH-MADM strategy for solving MADM with NHFSs based on extended GRA. We assume that the information of attributes is partially known or completely unknown. We develop two models to determine the weights of attributes. Then we rank the alternatives based on the strategy. Further, we extend the strategy into MADM in interval neutrosophic hesitant fuzzy set environment which we call INH-MADM strategy. Finally, we provide two illustrative examples to show the validity and effectiveness of the proposed strategies.

This paper proposes the concept of an interval neutrosophic hesitant fuzzy set (INHFS) and the operational relations of INHFSs. Then, we develop correlation coefficients of INHFSs and investigate the relation between the similarity measures and the correlation coefficients. Furthermore, a multiple attribute decision making method based on the correlation coefficients is established under interval neutrosophic hesitant fuzzy environment. Through the correlation coefficients between each alternative and the ideal alternative, we obtain the ranking order of all alternatives and the best one. Finally, an illustrative example of investment alternatives is given to demonstrate the application and effectiveness of the developed approach.
