1 Summary Operations on Fuzzy Sets Zadeh s Operations T-Norms S-Norms Adriano Cruz 00 NCE e IM/UFRJ Properties of Fuzzy Sets Fuzzy Measures One should not increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything. Occam's Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets Zadeh s Definitions Lofty Zadeh put forward the basic set operations is his seminal paper Fuzzy Sets, Information and Control, 1965 These operations reduce to the boolean operations when crisp sets are Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets 3

2 Why these operators? The crisp set operators are very well defined and understood, however when fuzzy sets are considered this definition is fuzzy and many other operations can be considered. Fuzzy set operators must obey a set of rules that generalize the operations. The so called T-norms (T(x,y)) and the T-conorms or S-norms (S(x,y)). T-norms generalize the and operator and t- conorms generalize the or operator T- Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets 8 Intersection operation T-norms Any t-norm operator, denoted as t(x,y) must satisfy five axioms. T-norms map from [0,1]x[0,1] [0,1] Let µ A (x), µ B (x), µ C (x) and µ D (x) four functions (sets). In order to simplify the notation we will use the letters a, b, c e d to represent them. T.1 T(0,0) = 0 T. T(a,b) = T(b,a) commutative T.3 T(a,1) = a neuter T.4 T(T(a,b),c)=T(a,T(b,c)) associative T.5 T(c,d) <=T(a,b) if c<=a and d<=b Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets 10 T-norms: comments Minimum, T-norm? It can be proved that the minimum operation is a t-norm The product operator is also a t-norm Obviously there are other operations that satisfy these axioms It can be proved that for any t-norm Τ(µ Α (x), µ Β (x)) <= min(µ Α (x), µ Β (x)) T.1 min(0,0) = 0 T. min(a,b) = min(b,a) T.3 min(a,1) = a T.4 min(min(a,b),c) = min(a,min(b,c)) = min(a,b,c) T.5 min(c,d) <= min(a,b) if c <= a and d <= Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets 1

3 Union Any s-norm operator denoted as s(x,y) must satisfy five axioms S-norms map [0,1]x[0,1] [0,1] Let µ A (x), µ B (x), µ C (x) e µ D (x) four fuzzy sets. In order to simplify the notation we will use the letters a,b,c and d. S-norms or T-conorms S.1 S(1,1) = 1 S. S(a,b) = S(b,a) commutative S.3 S(a,0) = a neuter S.4 S(S(a,b),c)=S(a,S(b,c)) associative S.5 S(c,d) <=S(a,b) if c<=a and d<=b Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets 14 S-norms: comments 1 It can be proved that the maximum is a s- norm Obviously there are other operations that satisfy these axioms. The addition operation do not satisfy the S.1 axiom, so it can not be used. It can be proved that for any S-norm we have S(µ Α (x), µ Β (x)) >= max(µ Α (x), µ Β (x)) S-norms: comments Note that it is not required the S-norm to be idempotent, that is S(a,a)=a, therefore the union of a set to itself it is not required to be equal to itself. Nor is required that the S-norm to be Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets 16 Maximum, S-norm? Algebraic sum, S-norm? S.1 max(0,0) = 0 S. max(a,b) = max(b,a) S.3 max(a,1) = a S.4 max(max(a,b),c) = max(a,max(b,c)) = max(a,b,c) S.5 max(c,d) <= max(a,b) if c <= a and d <= b µ A B a,b =a+b a b S S. a+b a b=b+a b a comutativa S. 3 a+ 0 a 0 Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets 18

4 Algebraic Sum, S-norm? S.4 S((a+b),c) = (a+b-ab) + c (a+b-ab)c = a+b-ab+c-ac-bc+abc = a+(b+c-bc)-a(b+c-bc) = S(a,(b+c)) = a + b + c ab ac bc + abc S.5 if c <= a, d <= b, a, b, c, d <= 1 a + b -ab >= c + d -cd Other examples Prove that T(a,b) <= min(a,b) T5: T(a,b) <= T(a,1) = a T: T(a,b) = T(b,a) T5: T(b,a) <= T(b,1) = b T: T(a,b) <= Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets 0 Pairs of T-norms and S-norms T-norm - Drastic Product: min x,y if max x,y 1 DP x,y 0 x,y 1 S-norm - Drastic Sum: max x,y if min x,y 0 DS x,y 1 x,y> 0 Pairs of T-norms and S-norms T-norm - Bounded Difference: BD x,y max 0, x+y 1 S-norm - Bounded Sum: BS x,y min 1, Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets Pairs of T-norms and S-norms T-norm Einstein Product: Pairs of T-norms and S-norms T-norm Algebraic Product: xy EP x,y x+y xy S-norm - Einstein Sum: ES x,y x+y 1+x. y AP x,y =xy S-norm - Algebraic Sum: AS x,y =x+y Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets Adriano Cruz NCE e IM - UFRJ Operations of Fuzzy Sets 4
