Among the various extensions to the common [0, 1]-valued truth degrees of " traditional " fuzzy set theory, closed intervals of [0, 1] stand out as a particularly appealing and promising choice for representing imperfect information, nicely accommodating and combining the facets of vagueness and uncertainty without paying too much in terms of computational(More)
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 quintessen-tial. In this paper, this task is undertaken simultaneously for the definition of implication within two(More)
—Intuitionistic fuzzy sets form an extension of fuzzy sets: while fuzzy sets give a degree to which an element belongs to a set, intuitionistic fuzzy sets give both a membership degree and a nonmembership degree. The only constraint on those two degrees is that their sum must be smaller than or equal to 1. In fuzzy set theory, an important class of(More)
In this paper, Ginsberg's/Fitting's theory of bilattices is invoked as a natural accommodation and powerful generalization to both intuitionistic fuzzy sets (IFSs) and interval-valued fuzzy sets (IVFSs), serving on one hand to clarify the exact nature of the relationship between these two common extensions of fuzzy sets, and on the other hand providing a(More)
Fuzzy relations are able to model vagueness, in the sense that they provide the degree to which two objects are related to each other. However, they cannot model uncertainty: there is no means to attribute reliability information to the membership degrees. Intuitionistic fuzzy sets, as deÿned by Atanassov give us a way to incorporate uncertainty in an(More)
