Abstract

In this paper, deriving the type-m fuzzy sets, intuitionistic fuzzy sets, Phi-fuzzy sets, rough sets, fuzzy rough sets and rough fuzzy sets as particular genuine sets, and establishing their connections with genuine sets, it is demonstrated that the theory of genuine sets provides a powerful tool to model various different kinds of uncertainty in a mathematical way. Furthermore, it is also shown that the genuine set theoretic descriptions of type-m fuzzy sets, intuitionistic fuzzy sets and fuzzy rough sets point out new features of these set notations, originated from the peculiar characteristics of genuine sets.
