Rough sets through algebraic logic. (English) Zbl 0864.03041
Summary: While studying rough equality within the framework of the modal system S 5 , an algebraic structure called rough algebra [M. Banerjee and M. K. Chakraborty, Bull. Pol. Acad. Sci., Math. 41, No. 4, 293-297 (1993; Zbl 0795.03035)], came up. Its features were abstracted to yield a topological quasi-Boolean algebra (tqBa). In this paper, it is observed that rough algebra is more structured than a tqBa. Thus, enriching the tqBa with additional axioms, two more structures, viz. pre-rough algebra and rough algebra, are defined. Representation theorems of these algebras are also obtained. Further, the corresponding logical systems 1 , 2 are proposed and eventually, 2 is proved to be sound and complete with respect to a rough set semantics.
