Abstract

The present paper has been an attempt to investigate the general fuzzy automata on the basis of complete residuated lattice-valued ($L$-GFAs). The study has been chiefly inspired from the work by Mockor \cite{15, 16, 17}. Regarding this, the categorical issue of $L$-GFAs has been studied in more details. The main issues addressed in this research include: (1) investigating the relationship between the category of $L$-GFAs and the category of non-deterministic automata (NDAs); as well as the relationship between the category of generalized $L$-GFAs and the category of NDAs; (2) demonstrating the existence of isomorphism between the category of $L$-GFAs and the subcategory of generalized $L$-GFAs and between the category of $L$-GFAs and the category of sets of NDAs; (3) and further scrutinizing some specific relationship between the output $L$-valued subsets of generalized $L$-GFAs and the output $L$-valued of NDAs.
