Reasonable properties for the ordering of fuzzy quantities. II.

*(English)*Zbl 0971.03055In Part I [reviewed above], possibilities (based on the defuzzification indices or the comparison with reference quantities) of ordering of fuzzy quantities were analysed. The aim of this paper is the continuation of this interesting study, more precisely, discussion of the ordering approach based on fuzzy relations from the point of view of the axioms given in the above mentioned work. Special attention is given to the acyclicity property.
