In this study, we first define the concept of fuzzy soft expert graph. The authors have established a link between graphs and fuzzy soft expert sets. Basic operations of fuzzy soft expert graphs such as union, intersection and complement are defined here. The concept of fuzzy soft expert soft graph is also discussed in this article. The new concept is called fuzzy soft expert graph-based multi-criteria decision making method.

Keywords: Graph, soft expert set, fuzzy soft set, fuzzy soft expert.
