A BL-Algebra on Type-2 Fuzzy Sets


  • Enrico Fischetti Dipartimento di Informatica University of Salerno Italy


Type-2 fuzzy sets, BL-algebras, Basic logic


In this paper,  we investigate the formal properties of  a peculiar BL-algebra whose elements are particular type-2 fuzzy sets. These type-2 fuzzy sets have membership degrees that are triangular fuzzy number totally ordered on [0, 1]. This algebra, endowed with suitable functions for data modelling, allows to handle  a  wide range of applications.
