Abstract

Standard rough sets are defined by a partition induced by an equivalence relation representing discernibility of elements. Equivalence relations may not provide a realistic view of relationships between elements in real-world applications. One may use coverings of, or non-equivalence relations on, the universe. In this paper, the notion of weak fuzzy similarity relations, a generalization of fuzzy similarity relations, is used to provide a more realistic description of relationships between elements. A special type of weak fuzzy similarity relations called conditional probability relation is discussed. Generalized rough set approximations are proposed by using α-coverings of the universe induced by conditional probability relations.
