Toward a Definite Integral of a Z-Number-Valued Function
Z-number-valued function analysis is a new direction of studies on processing of information characterized by fuzziness and probabilistic uncertainty. Differentiability and integrability are among the related key problems. In this paper, we made a first step toward formulation of a definite integral of Z-number-valued function. A definition of definite integral is proposed and its relation with the concept of derivative is analyzed. In the proposed approach, the formalism of approximate limits is used.
