Type-2 Fuzzy Equivalence Relation on A Groupoid under Balanced and Semibalanced Maps

Dhiman Dutta, Mausumi Sen


In this paper we generalize the idea of balanced and semibalanced maps in type-2 fuzzy sets. The notion of type-2 fuzzy G-equivalence and G-congruence on a groupoid are introduced and some properties related to these notions have been established.


Type-2 fuzzy congruence; Type-2 fuzzy semibalanced mappings; Type-2 fuzzy f -invariant; Type-2 fuzzy f -stable
