Abstract

A new method for solving a fuzzy linear system (FLS), $A\tilde X=\tilde Y$, where the coefficient matrix $A$ is an arbitrary real matrix is obtained. A necessary and sufficient condition for the ${\cal R}$-consistency of the associated system of linear equations is obtained, related to its
representative solutions.  Moreover, the general form of representative solutions of such linear systems is presented. The straightforward method for solving $m\times n$ FLS based on an arbitrary $\{1\}$-inverse of $A$ is introduced. This method is illustrated by interesting examples.
