- fuzzy numbers median distances between fuzzy numbers
- Since fuzzy numbers are not linearly ordered a median of a fuzzy sample cannot be determined directly as it happens with crisp observations. Even the very notion of a median of a fuzzy sample is not well established. Therefore we propose some definitions of the fixed-shape fuzzy median of a fuzzy sample as a member of a given class of fuzzy numbers which minimizes the distance to the sample. We also prove the existence of such fixed-shape median for the most important subfamilies of fuzzy numbers and the broad class of metrics.
