A $$T$$-sum bound of LR-fuzzy numbers. (English) Zbl 0920.04010
Summary: We provide an upper bound and a lower bound of the $$T$$-sum of LR-fuzzy numbers with different spreads, where $$T$$ is an Archimedean $$t$$-norm, and show in three examples how close they are to actual membership functions. Furthermore, we study when the membership function of a $$T$$-sum achieves the upper bound.
