Rough sets. (English) Zbl 0501.68053

Summary: We investigate in this paper approximate operations on sets, approximate equality of sets, and approximate inclusion of sets. The presented approach may be considered as an alternative to fuzzy set theory and tolerance theory. Some applications are outlined.
