Abstract: The main aim of this paper is to develop an approach to solving multi-objective bi-matrix games with intuitionistic fuzzy (IF) goals, which are called IF multi-objective bi-matrix games for short. In this paper, the solution approach for such a game is presented by introducing an aspiration level approach, and IF non-linear programming problem is constructed to find the optimal solution for such types of multi-objective bi-matrix games. Furthermore, it is shown that this multi-objective bi-matrix game with IF goals is an extension of the multi-objective bi-matrix game with fuzzy goals. Finally, a numerical example is incorporated to demonstrate the implementation and applicability process of the proposed approach.

Keywords: non-linear programming; intuitionistic fuzzy set; multi-objective bi-matrix games; game theory; intuitionistic fuzzy goals; aspiration level approach.
