The paper sets forth in detail categorically-algebraic or catalg foundations for the operations of taking the image and preimage of (fuzzy) sets called forward and backward powerset operators. Motivated by an open question of S. E. Rodabaugh, we construct a monad on the category of sets, the algebras of which generate the fixed-basis forward powerset operator of L. A. Zadeh. On the next step, we provide a direct lift of the backward powerset operator using the notion of categorical biproduct. The obtained framework is readily extended to the variable-basis case, justifying the powerset theories currently popular in the fuzzy community. At the end of the paper, our general variety-based setting postulates the requirements, under which a convenient variety-based powerset theory can be developed, suitable for employment in all areas of fuzzy mathematics dealing with fuzzy powersets, including fuzzy algebra, logic and topology.

The acceptance sampling plan problem is an important topic inquality control and both the theory of probability and theory of fuzzy sets maybe used to solve it. In this paper, we discuss the single acceptance samplingplan, when the proportion of nonconforming products is a fuzzy number. We show that the operating characteristic (𝑂𝐶) curve of the plan is a band havinghigh and low bounds and that for fixed sample size and acceptance number,the width of the band depends on the ambiguity proportion parameter in thelot. When the acceptance number equals zero, this band is convex and the convexity increases with 𝑛 Finally, we compare the 𝑂𝐶 bands for a given value of 𝑐.

In this paper, a maximum likelihood estimation and a minimum entropy estimation for the expected value and variance of normal fuzzy variable are discussed within the framework of credibility theory. As an application, a credibilistic portfolio selection model is proposed, which is an improvement over the traditional models as it only needs the predicted values on the security returns instead of their membership functions.

We study L-categories of lattice-valued convergence spaces. Suchcategories are obtained by fuzzifying" the axioms of a lattice-valued convergencespace. We give a natural example, study initial constructions andfunction spaces. Further we look into some L-subcategories. Finally we usethis approach to quantify how close certain lattice-valued convergence spacesare to being lattice-valued topological spaces.

The aim of this paper is to introduce and study a new concept ofstrong double $(A)_ {Delta}$-convergent sequence offuzzy numbers with respect to an Orlicz function and also someproperties of the resulting sequence spaces of fuzzy numbers areexamined. In addition, we define the double$(A,Delta)$-statistical convergence of fuzzy numbers andestablish some connections between the spaces of strong double$(A)_ {Delta}$-convergent sequence and double $(A,Delta)$-statistical convergent sequence.

Using the notion of bipolar-valued fuzzy sets, the concepts of bipolarfuzzy (weak, 𝑠-weak, strong) hyper BCK-ideals are introduced, and theirrelations are discussed. Moreover, several related properties are investigated.

In this paper, the denition of net-theoretical L-generalized convergencespaces is proposed. It is shown that, for L a frame, the category ofenriched L-fuzzy topological spaces can be embedded in that of L-generalizedconvergence spaces as a reective subcategory and the latter is a cartesianclosedtopological category.

In this paper, the concept of k-regular fuzzy matrix as a general- ization of regular matrix is introduced and some basic properties of a k-regular fuzzy matrix are derived. This leads to the characterization of a matrix for which the regularity index and the index are identical. Further the relation between regular, k-regular and regularity of powers of fuzzy matrices are dis- cussed.

In this paper we introduce a definition of gradation of continuity ingraded fuzzy topological spaces and study its various characteristic properties.The impact of the grade of continuity of mappings over the N-compactnessgrade is examined. Concept of gradation is also introduced in openness, closed-ness, homeomorphic properties of mappings and T2 separation axiom. Effectof the grades interrelated with N-compactness, closedness, T2 separation andhomeomorphism of mappings are studied.
