From Trillas’ Negations and Antonyms to a Set Representation of Contradiction Within Bipolar and Other Extensions of Fuzzy Sets

Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 323)


In 1979, Enric Trillas started to interest in in fuzzy connectives. His first paper on this topic was ”Funciones de negacin en la teora de subconjuntos difusos” ([9]) (Negation functions in the theory of fuzzy subsets), which appeared in Spanish in the Stochastica journal. This work, focused on the characterization of strong negations, has been so relevant for the development of fuzzy theory that it was translated into English and widely cited in the last 35 years.
