Abstract

Since Pawlak defined the notion of rough sets in 1982, many authors made wide research studying rough sets in the ordinary case and the fuzzy case. This paper introduced a new style of rough fuzzy sets based on %arbitrary fuzzy relation $R$ and a fuzzy ideal $\ell$ on a universal finite set $X$. New lower and new upper fuzzy sets are introduced, and consequently, fuzzy interior and  fuzzy closure of a rough fuzzy set are discussed. These definitions, if $\ell$ is restricted to $\ell^{\circ} = \{\overline{0}\}$, imply the fuzzification of previous definitions given in the ordinary case, and moreover in the crisp case, we get exactly these previous definitions. The new style gives us a better accuracy value of roughness than the previous styles. Rough fuzzy connectedness is introduced as a sample of applications on the recent style of roughness.
