University of TehranJournal of Algorithms and Computation2476-2776Articles in Press20220115On the resolution of LP-FRE defined by the convex combination operator1128550010.22059/jac.2022.85500ENJournal Article20220115In this paper, a linear programming problem is investigated in which the feasible region is formed as a special type of fuzzy relational equalities (FRE). In this type of FRE, fuzzy composition is considered as the convex combination operator. It is proved that the feasible region of the problem can be written by one maximum solution and a finite number of minimal solutions. Some theoretical properties of the feasible region are derived and some necessary and sufficient conditions are also presented to determine the feasibility of the problem. Based on some structural properties of the problem, an algorithm is presented to find the optimal solutions and finally, an example is described to illustrate the algorithm.https://jac.ut.ac.ir/article_85500_9aac5176bd34dae432d6c128dd0c8d2b.pdf
