Operations on type-2 fuzzy sets. (English) Zbl 1010.03047

Summary: We discuss set operations on type-2 fuzzy sets (including join and meet under minimum/product t-norm), algebraic operations, properties of membership grades of type-2 sets, and type-2 relations and their compositions. All this is needed to implement a type-2 fuzzy logic system (FLS).
