Properties of Fuzzy Length on Fuzzy Set

The definition of fuzzy length space on fuzzy set in this research was introduced after the studies and discussion of many properties of this space were proved, and then an example to illustrate this notion was given. Also the definition of fuzzy convergence, fuzzy bounded fuzzy set, and fuzzy dense fuzzy set space was introduced, and then the definition of fuzzy continuous operator was introduced.

Zadeh in 1965  introduced the theory of fuzzy sets. Many authors have introduced the notion of fuzzy norm in different ways  -  . Cheng and Mordeson in 1994  defined fuzzy norm on a linear space whose associated fuzzy metric is of Kramosil and Mickalek type  as follows:

The order pair is said to be a fuzzy normed space if X is a linear space and N is a fuzzy set on satisfying the following conditions for every and .

(i) , for all .

(ii) For all , if and only if .

(iii) , for all and for all .

(iv) For all , where .

(v) .

The definition of continuous t-norm was introduced by George and Veeramani in  . Bag and Samanta in  modified the definition of Cheng and Mordeson of fuzzy norm as follows:

The triple is said to be a fuzzy normed space if X is a linear space, is a continuous t-norm and N is a fuzzy set on satisfying the following conditions for every and.

(i), for all.

(ii) For all, if and only if.

(iii) for all.

(iv) For all,.

(v) For, is continuous.

(vi).

The definition of fuzzy length space is introduced in this research as a modification of the notion of fuzzy normed space due to Bag and Samanta. In Section 1, we recall basic concepts of fuzzy set and the definition of continuous t-norm. Then in Section 2 we define the fuzzy length space on fuzzy set after we give an example; then we prove that every ordinary norm induces a fuzzy length, and also the definition of fuzzy open fuzzy ball, fuzzy convergent sequence, fuzzy open fuzzy set, fuzzy Cauchy sequence, and fuzzy bounded fuzzy set is introduced. In Section 3, we prove other properties of fuzzy length space. Finally in Section 4, we define a fuzzy continuous operator between two fuzzy length spaces. Also we prove several properties for fuzzy continuous operator.

2. Basic Concept about Fuzzy Set

Definition 2.1:

Let X be a classical set of object, called the universal set, whose generic elements are denoted by x. The membership in a classical subject A of X is often viewed as a characteritic function from X onto {0, 1} such that if and if, {0, 1} is called a valuation set. If a valuation set is allowed to be real interval [0, 1] then A is called a fuzzy set which is denoted in this case by and is the grade of membership of x in. Also, it is remarkable that the closer the value of to 1, the more belong to. Clearly, is a subset of X that has no sharp boundary. The fuzzy set is completely characterized by the set of pairs:

3. On Fuzzy Length Space

First we introduce the main definition in this paper.

tinuous fuzzy set if whenever in then that is.

for all. Define.

Then is a fuzzy length space on the fuzzy set, is called the fuzzy length induced by.

Proof:

To prove is a fuzzy length space on the fuzzy set we must prove the five conditions of Definition 3.1:

(FL1) Since for all so for all, where.

(FL2) It is clear that for each if and only if.

(FL3) If then for each, for each.

(FL4) for each, where.

(FL5) is continuous since is a continuous function.

Hence is a fuzzy length space on the fuzzy.

Definition 3.5:

Let be a fuzzy set in X, and assume that is a fuzzy length space on the

fuzzy. Let. So is said to be

a fuzzy open fuzzy ball of center and radius r.

We omitted the proof of the next result since it is clear.

To prove the converse, let when.

Hence when, there is K such that .

So. Therefore by Definition 3.7. ∎

And this proves (b).

.

Taking the limit to both sides as we get

Hence, fuzzy converges to, since was an arbitrary subsequence of. Therefore all subsequence of is fuzzy converges to.

Proposition 4.6:

tains a such that, then fuzzy converges to

5. Fuzzy Continuous Operators on Fuzzy Length Spaces

In this section, we will suppose is fuzzy set of X and be fuzzy set of Y where X and Y are vector space.

Definition 5.1:

Let and be two fuzzy length space on fuzzy set and respectively, let then The operator is said to be fuzzy continuous at, if for every there exist such that whenever satisfying. If T is fuzzy continuous at every fuzzy point of, then T it is said to be fuzzy continuous on.

Theorem 5.2:

Let and be two fuzzy length space, let. The operator is fuzzy continuous at if and only if whenever a sequence of fuzzy points in fuzzy converge to, then the sequence of fuzzy points fuzzy converges to.

Proof:

Suppose that the operator is fuzzy continuous at and let be a sequence in fuzzy converge to. Let be given. By fuzzy continuity of T at, then there exists such that whenever and, implies. Since

then we can find K with such that. Therefore when

implies. Thus.

Conversely, assume that every sequence in fuzzy converging to has the property that. Suppose that T is not fuzzy continuous at. Then there is and for which no, can satisfy the require-

ment that and implies. This means that for every there exists such that but. For every, there exist such that, but

. The sequence fuzzy converges to but the sequence does not fuzzy converge to (). This contradicts the assumption that every sequence in fuzzy converging to has the property that. Therefore the assumption that T is not fuzzy continuous at must be false.

Definition 5.3:

Let and be two fuzzy length spaces let and let the fuzzy point is a fuzzy limit of written by whenever if for every there is such that when and.

Proposition 5.4:

Let and be two fuzzy length spaces, let and. Suppose that is fuzzy limit fuzzy point of. Then if and only if for every sequence in such that and.

Proof: the argument is similar that of Theorem (5.3) and therefore is not included.

Proposition 5.5:

An operator T of the fuzzy length space into a fuzzy length space is fuzzy continuous at the fuzzy point if and only if for every there exist such that.

Proof: the operator is fuzzy continuous at if and only if for every there exist such that for all satisfying i.e. implies or this is equivalent to the condition

.

Theorem 5.6:

An operator is fuzzy continuous if and only if is fuzzy open in for all fuzzy open of where and are fuzzy length space.

Proof:

Suppose that T is fuzzy continuous operator and let be fuzzy open in we show that is fuzzy open in. Since and are fuzzy open, we may suppose that and.

Let then. Since is fuzzy open, then there is such that, since T is fuzzy continuous at by proposition 4.5 for this there exist such that.

Thus, every fuzzy point of is an interior fuzzy point and so if a fuzzy open in.

Conversely, suppose that is fuzzy open in for any fuzzy open of. Let for each, the fuzzy ball is fuzzy open in

since it follows that there exist such that by proposition 5.5, it follows that T is fuzzy continuous.

Theorem 5.7:

An operator is fuzzy continuous on if and only if is fuzzy closed in for all fuzzy closed of.

Proof:

Let be a fuzzy closed subset of then is fuzzy open in so that is fuzzy open in by theorem 4.6 but so is fuzzy closed in.

Conversely, suppose that is fuzzy closed in for all fuzzy closed subset of. But the empty fuzzy set and the whole space are fuzzy closed fuzzy set. Then is fuzzy open in and is fuzzy in. Since every fuzzy open subset of is of the type, where is suitable fuzzy closed fuzzy set, it follows by using theorem 5.6, that T is fuzzy continuous.

Theorem 5.8:

Let and and be three fuzzy length spaces let and be fuzzy continuous operator. Then the composition is a fuzzy continuous operator from into.

Proof:

Let be fuzzy open subset of. By theorem (5.6), is a fuzzy open subset of and another application of the same theorem shows that is a fuzzy open subset of, since it follows from the same theorem again that () is a fuzzy continuous.

Theorem 5.9:

Let and be two fuzzy length spaces let, then the following statements are equivalent.

(i) T is fuzzy continuous on.

(ii) For all subset of.

(iii) For all subset of.

Proof: (i) ⇒ (ii)

Let be a subset of, since is a fuzzy closed subset of, is fuzzy closed in. Moreover and so.

[Recall that is the smallest fuzzy closed fuzzy set containing].

Proof: (ii) ⇒ (iii)

Let be a subset of, then if, we have and thus.

Proof: (iii) ⇒ (i)

Let be a fuzzy closed fuzzy set in and fuzzy set. By theorem (4.7), it is sufficient to show that is a fuzzy closed in, that is, Now so that.

6. Conclusion

In this research the fuzzy length space of fuzzy points was defined as a generalization of the definition of fuzzy norm on ordinary points. Based on the defined fuzzy length, most of the properties of the ordinary norm were proved.
