1. Introduction

As it is well known, the Henstock integral for a real function was first defined by Henstock [2] in 1963. The Henstock integral is a lot of powerful and easier than the Lebesgue, Wiener and Richard Phillips Feynman integrals. Furthermore, it is also equal to the Denjoy and the Perron integrals [2] [3] . In 2016, Hamid and Elmuiz [4] introduced the concept of the Henstock-Stieltjes integrals of interval-valued functions and fuzzy-number-valued functions and discussed a number of their properties.

In this paper, we introduce the concept of the AP-Henstock integrals of interval-valued functions and fuzzy-number-valued functions and discuss some of their properties.

The paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we have a tendency to provide the preliminary terminology used in this paper. Section 3 is dedicated to discussing the AP-Henstock integral of interval-valued functions. In Section 4, we introduce the AP- Henstock integral of fuzzy-number-valued functions. The last section provides conclusions.

2 Preliminaries

Let be a measurable set and let be a real number. The density of at is defined by

(2.1)

provided the limit exists. The point is called a point of density of if. The set represents the set of all points such that is a point of density of.

A measurable set is called an approximate neighborhood (br.ap-nbd) of if it containing as a point of density. We choose an ap-nbd for each and denote a choice on by. A tagged interval-point pair is said to be -fine if and.

A division is a finite collection of interval-point pairs, where are non-overlapping subintervals of. We say that is

1) a division of if;

2) -fine division of if and is -fine for all.

Definition 2.1. [2] [3] A real-valued function is said to be Henstock integrable to on if for every, there is a function such that for any -fine division of, we have

(2.2)

where the sum is understood to be over and we write, and.

Definition 2.2. [5] A function is AP-Henstock integrable if there exists a real number such that for each there is a choice such that

(2.3)

for each -fine division of. is called AP-Henstock integral of on, and we write.
