Abstract: In the present paper some of the proposed in the literature distances and pseudometrics between intuitionistic fuzzy sets are considered and a more general approach for constructing new distances, with their help, is proposed. As a result a way of generating new similarity measures is given.
Keywords: Intuitionistic fuzzy sets, Distance, Metric, Pseudometric, Similarity measure.
