Definition 2. The correlation coefficient rA−IFS (A, B) between two A-IFSs, A and B in X, is (Szmidt and Kacprzyk [37]): 1 rA−IFS (A, B) = (r1 (A, B) + r2(A, B) + r3 (A, B)) 3 (11) 44 E. Szmidt, J.

In our quest for doing the above, we have already discussed in detail the Pearson correlation coefficient r (Szmidt and Kacprzyk [37], and the Spearman rank correlation coefficient rs in (Szmidt and Kacprzyk [38]). This paper is a continuation of our work [39] on the Kendall τ correlation coefficient. We have proposed the concept of the Kendall correlation coefficient for the A-IFSs which is a generalization of the Kendall correlation coefficient for crisp sets as it fulfills the same properties.
