In a ternary semihyperring, addition is a hyperoperation and multiplication
is a ternary operation. Indeed, the notion of ternary semihyperrings
is a generalization of semirings. Our main purpose of this paper is to introduce
the notions of fuzzy hyperideal and fuzzy bi-hyperideal in ternary semihyperrings.
We give some characterizations of fuzzy hyperideals and investigate
several kinds of them.
