L-fuzzy Sets and Intuitionistic Fuzzy Sets

DOI: 10.1007/978-3-540-72687-6_16 In book: Computational Intelligence Based on Lattice Theory, Publisher: Springer, pp.325-339

ABSTRACT Summary. In this article we firstly summarize some notions on L-fuzzy sets, where L denotes a complete lattice. We then study a special case of L-fuzzy sets, namely the “intuitionistic fuzzy sets”. The importance of these sets comes from the fact that the negation is
being defined independently from the fuzzy membership function. The latter implies both flexibility and e.ectiveness in fuzzy
inference applications. We additionally show several practical applications on intuitionistic fuzzy sets, in the context of
computational intelligence.

    ABSTRACT: With the demand for knowledge-handling systems capable of dealing with and distinguishing between various facets of imprecision ever increasing, a clear and formal characterization of the mathematical models implementing such services is quintessential. In this paper, this task is undertaken simultaneously for the definition of implication within two settings: first, within intuitionistic fuzzy set theory and secondly, within interval-valued fuzzy set theory. By tracing these models back to the underlying lattice that they are defined on, on one hand we keep up with an important tradition of using algebraic structures for developing logical calculi (e.g. residuated lattices and MV algebras), and on the other hand we are able to expose in a clear manner the two models’ formal equivalence. This equivalence, all too often neglected in literature, we exploit to construct operators extending the notions of classical and fuzzy implication on these structures; to initiate a meaningful classification framework for the resulting operators, based on logical and extra-logical criteria imposed on them; and finally, to re(de)fine the intuititive ideas giving rise to both approaches as models of imprecision and apply them in a practical context.

    ABSTRACT: Order-theoretic, topological, categorical redundancies of interval-valued sets, grey sets, vague sets, interval-valued "intuitionistic" sets, "intuitionistic" fuzzy sets and topologies Abstract This paper demonstrates two meta-mathematical propositions concerning the increasingly popular "intuitionistic" (= vague) approaches to fuzzy sets and fuzzy topology, as well as the closely related interval-valued (= grey) sets and interval-valued "intuitionistic" sets: (1) the term "intuitionistic" in these contexts is historically inappropriate given the standard mathematical usage of "intuitionistic"; and (2), at every level of existence—powerset level, topo-logical fibre level, categorical level—interval-valued sets, interval-valued "intuitionistic" sets, and "intuitionistic" fuzzy sets and fuzzy topologies are redundant and represent unnecessarily complicated, strictly special subcases of standard fixed-basis set theory and topology. It therefore follows that theoretical workers should stop working in these restrictive and complicated programs and instead turn their efforts to substantial problems in the simpler and more general fixed-basis and variable-basis set theory and topology, while applied workers should carefully document the need or appropriateness of interval-valued or "intuitionistic" notions in applications.
