Eigen fuzzy number sets. (English) Zbl 0581.04007
Let X be a finite set and R:X\(\times X\to [0,1]\) be a fuzzy relation on X. A fuzzy set \(A: X\to [0,1]\) is an eigen fuzzy set associated with R if \(R\circ A=A\), where ”\(\circ ''\) stands for the max-min composition. If R is assigned and A is unknown, it suffices to apply the algorithms of E. Sanchez [Fuzzy Sets Syst. 1, 69-74 (1978; Zbl 0366.04001); J. Math. Anal. Appl. 81, 399-421 (1981; Zbl 0466.04003)] in order to find the greatest eigen fuzzy set associated with R. The authors solve a similar problem by replacing the entries in R and in A with fuzzy numbers. The definition of fuzzy number used by the authors [Fuzzy Sets Syst. 10, 87- 99 (1983; Zbl 0521.54001)] is a slight variant of that of D. Dubois and H. Prade [Int. J. Syst. Sci. 9, 613-626 (1978; Zbl 0383.94045)]. Interesting topological properties of particular fuzzy numbers, namely \(\theta\)-crisp, are also established.
