In this case, we do not need to carry out a formal test of monotonicity to conclude that use of basic medical tests is inequitable in favor of the well-off among individuals in good health but becomes essentially equitable among those in fair and poor health.
2010a) developed the induced fuzzy number intuitionistic fuzzy ordered weighted geometric (I-FIFOWG) operator and studied some desirable properties of the I-FIFOWG operators, such as commutativity, idempotency and monotonicity.

The monotonicity is needed for existence and the continuity is needed for uniqueness.

Also, we prove that the max-product truncated Whittaker operator and the max-product truncated operator based on the Fejer-type kernel, partially preserve the monotonicity.
Mokken scale analysis was undertaken on the admission and discharge scores on the SULCS to investigate the following psychometric properties: whether the items form a scale (monotone homogeneity model fit); whether the instrument assesses a single concept (unidimensionality); whether the items in the instrument are hierarchical for all patients (double monotonicity model fit); and whether there are valid comparisons between different patient subgroups (differential item functioning).
The analogy for evolutionary stability in this context is monotonicity.
I will argue that the monotonicity constraint that is based on part-whole relationships and that is considered to be responsible for ruling out or allowing nouns in pseudopartitive constructions (Schwarzschild 2002) should but cannot explain the difference between the morphosyntactic behavior of 'warmth' and 'temperature'.
