Arguments

data.fuzzified

a fuzzification matrix constructed by a call to the function FUZZ or the function GFUZZ, or a similar matrix. No NA are allowed.

method

choices are the following: "distance", "exact", "approximation1", "approxi- mation2", "approximation3", "approximation4", "approximation5".

dist.type

type of distance chosen from the family of distances. The different choices are given by: "Rho1", "Rho2", "Bertoluzza", "Rhop", "Delta.pq", "Mid/Spr", "wabl", "DSGD", "DSGD.G", "GSGD".

i

parameter of the density function of the Beta distribution, fixed by default to i = 1.

j

parameter of the density function of the Beta distribution, fixed by default to j = 1.

theta

a numerical value between 0 and 1, representing a weighting parameter. By default, theta is fixed to 1/3 referring to the Lebesgue space. This measure is used in the calculations of the following distances: d_Bertoluzza, d_mid/spr and d_phi-wabl/ldev/rdev.

thetas

a decimal value between 0 and 1, representing the weight given to the shape of the fuzzy number. By default, thetas is fixed to 1. This parameter is used in the calculations of the d_theta star and the d_GSGD distances.

p

a positive integer such that 1 p < infinity, referring to the parameter of the Rho_p and Delta_pq. By default, p is fixed to 2.

q

a decimal value between 0 and 1, referring to the parameter of the metric Delta_pq. By default, q is fixed to 0.5.

breakpoints

a positive arbitrary integer representing the number of breaks chosen to build the numerical alpha-cuts. It is fixed to 100 by default.

int.method

the integration method could be one of the following four methods: "int.0", "int.t", "int.ct" and "int.simpson".

plot

fixed by default to "FALSE". plot="TRUE" if a plot of the fuzzy number is required.

Value

If the parameter method = "distance", returns a numerical value. If else, returns the numerical α-cuts of the estimated fuzzy variance.
