Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

  • Triangular Fuzzy Interpolation Deinterlacing Algorithm Method for Image Edge Detection   Order a copy of this article
    by Jagatheswari Kalimuthu 
    Abstract: Edge detection is the first step in image as it can be applied in the process of feature extraction, segmentation and classification. This study proposes a new fuzzy logic based edge detection method and computationally efficient algorithm based on triangular fuzzy interpolation technique for intra field deinterlacing of images that reduces the loss in image quality at the edges. The proposed algorithm improves image deinterlacing quality with respect to missing pixels in the edge region. When interpolating the missing pixels, characteristics or features of the region around the pixel are interpolated first. The proposed algorithm is tested with five test images which have both uniform surface and edges. The subjective and objective performance of the proposed algorithm shows greater improvement in the edge quality when correlated with the traditional deinterlacing methods. The designed fuzzy rules become an attractive solution for the betterment of the quality of edges as much as possible. The result reveals that the proposed algorithm provides greater robustness to contrast and lighting variations.

  • Response bias in decision making: An application of intuitionistic fuzzy targeting decision uncertainties   Order a copy of this article
    by Arnab Kundu, Tripti Bej, Samirranjan Adhikari 
    Abstract: The human cognitive structure is very uncertain and ever-elusive to arrest. The purpose of this study was to formulate a mathematical model to evade response bias latent in the quantification process in any decision-making by applying intuitionistic fuzzy logic, potent in arresting uncertainties. Following this research aim, a sample problem was adopted from the school setting regarding the election of a class monitor based on an opinion survey among five teachers on a Likert scale. The numerical decision values were converted to intuitionistic fuzzy. Findings revealed a palpable difference between Likert values and their Fuzzified corresponding values wherefrom the authors empirically deduced that fuzzified result is more precise over the quantified Likert values considering respondents biases, uncertainties, inter-rater agreements, or disagreements. Finally, the researchers proposed the intuitionistic fuzzy score function evolved in this study, needs to be investigated with a larger sample size to draw more authentication.

  • On the Borel summability method of rough convergence of triple sequences of Bernstein-Stancu operator of fuzzy numbers   Order a copy of this article
    by A. Esi, Subramanian Nagarajan 
    Abstract: We define the concept of rough limit set of a triple sequence space of Bernstein-Stancu polynomials of Borel summability of fuzzy numbers and obtain the relation between the set of rough limit and the extreme limit points of a triple sequence space of Bernstein-Stancu polynomials of Borel summability method of fuzzy numbers. Finally, we investigate some properties of the rough limit set of Bernstein-Stancu polynomials under which Borel summable sequence of fuzzy numbers are convergent. Also, we give the results for Borel summability method of series of fuzzy numbers.
    Keywords: triple sequences; rough convergence; sequences of fuzzy numbers,Bernstein-Stancu polynomials; Borel summability method.
