Abstract :

  Plithogenic Hypersoft set is the multi argument function with plithogenic universe of discourse and single dominant attribute value. The theory of plithogenic sets deals with the attributes and it is of the form (P, a, V, d, c) characterized by the degree of appurtenance and contradiction. This paper introduces the approach of plithogenic hypersoft sets with two independent dominant attribute values pertaining to each attribute to handle the dual system of decision making. The proposed decision making model is validated with the data of the present COVID -19 pandemic situations. The objective of the model is to rank the patients being identified as asymptotic and affected using Frequency Matrix Multi Attributes Decision making system. Combined plithogenic hypersoft representations of the degree of appurtenance between the patients and the attribute values make the decision-making model more comprehensive and feasible. The developed model can be extended to other decision making environment with various forms of degree of appurtenance.
