The relations “less or equal” and “less than” for ordered fuzzy numbers

Krzysztof Piasecki


The ordered fuzzy number is defined as fuzzy number supplemented with orientation of number. Any positively oriented ordered fuzzy number is interpreted as an imprecise real number which may to increase. Any negatively oriented ordered fuzzy number is interpreted as an imprecise real number which may to decrease. The main goal of this paper is to introduce the preorder “less or equal” and the strict order “less than” on the space of all ordered fuzzy numbers. These relations are defined as an extension of analogous relations on the space of all fuzzy numbers. All properties of the introduced relations have been investigated on the basis of the revised Kosiński’s theory of ordered fuzzy numbers. It is shown here that in the above way these relations have been defined unambiguously as fuzzy ones. In addition, it is proven that the obtained relationships depend on the orientation of the difference between the compared numbers. The results obtained will be useful for formulating optimization tasks using numbers.
