On \((\overline{\in},\overline{\in} \vee \overline{q})\)-fuzzy ideals of BCI-algebras

Original Article


The concepts of \((\overline{\in},\overline{\in} \vee \overline{q})\)-fuzzy (p-, q- and a-) ideals of BCI-algebras are introduced and some related properties are investigated. In particular, we describe the relationships among ordinary fuzzy (p-, q- and a-) ideals, (∈, ∈ ∨ q)-fuzzy (p-, q- and a-) ideals and \((\overline{\in},\overline{\in} \vee \overline{q})\)-fuzzy (p-,q- and a-) ideals of BCI-algebras. Moreover, we prove that a fuzzy set μ of a BCI-algebra X is an \((\overline{\in},\overline{\in} \vee \overline{q})\)-fuzzy a-ideal of X if and only if it is both an \((\overline{\in},\overline{\in} \vee \overline{q})\)-fuzzy p-ideal and an \((\overline{\in},\overline{\in} \vee \overline{q})\)-fuzzy q-ideal. Finally, we give some characterizations of three particular cases of BCI-algebras by these generalized fuzzy ideals.
