# Dwablphi: (\varphi,theta)-wabl/ldev/rdev distance between fuzzy numbers In FuzzyStatTra: Statistical Methods for Trapezoidal Fuzzy Numbers

## Description

This function calculates the (\varphi,θ)-wabl/ldev/rdev distance between the fuzzy numbers contained in two arrays, which should be given in the desired format. For this, the function first checks if the input arrays R and S are in the correct form (tested by checking) and if the α-levels of all fuzzy numbers coincide.

## Usage

 1 Dwablphi(R, S, a = 1, b = 1, theta = 1) 

## Arguments

 R array of dimension nl x 3 x r containing r fuzzy numbers characterized by means of nl α-levels each. The function first calls checking to check if the array R has the correct format. Moreover, the α-levels of the array R should coincide with the ones of the array S (the function checks this condition). S array of dimension nl x 3 x s containing s fuzzy numbers characterized by means of nl α-levels each. The function first calls checking to check if the array S has the correct format. Moreover, the α-levels of the array S should coincide with the ones of the array R (the function checks this condition). a number >0, by default a=1. It is the first parameter of a beta distribution which corresponds to a weighting measure on [0,1]. b number >0, by default b=1. It is the second parameter of a beta distribution which corresponds to a weighting measure on [0,1]. theta number >0, by default theta=1. It is the weight of the ldev and rdev in the (\varphi,θ)-wabl/ldev/rdev distance.

See examples

## Value

The function returns a matrix of dimension r x s containing the (\varphi,θ)-wabl/ldev/rdev distances between the fuzzy numbers of the array R and the fuzzy numbers of the array S .
