—In this paper, a new method has been defined to measure the degree of similarity between generalized fuzzy numbers and some properties of the proposed similarity measure have been discussed with examples. The proposed similarity measure is more accurate, robust, free from defect and precise due to the reason that the proposed similarity measure includes minimal parameters to define a generalized fuzzy numbers. This novel similarity measure has many applications in the fields of Clustering, Pattern recognition, Finger-Print matching, Fuzzy risk analysis, Decision- making and Image processing.
