A Unified Theory (I) for Neighborhood Systems and Basic Concepts on Fuzzifying Topological Spaces

This paper considers fuzzifying topologies, a special case of I-fuzzy topologies (bifuzzy topologies), introduced by Ying. It investigates topological notions defined by means of -open sets when these are planted into the frame-work of Ying’s fuzzifying topological spaces (by Lukasiewicz logic in [0, 1]). In this paper we introduce some sorts of operations, called general fuzzifying operations from P(X) to , where (X, τ) is a fuzzifying topological space. By making use of them we contract neighborhood structures, derived sets, closure operations and interior operations.
