We first look at some nonstandard fuzzy sets, intuitionistic, and interval-valued fuzzy sets. We note both these allow a degree of commitment of less then one in assigning membership. We look at the formulation of the negation for these sets and show its expression in terms of the standard complement with respect to the degree of commitment. We then consider the complement operation. We describe its properties and look at alternative definitions of complement operations. We then focus on the… Expand
