Part of the Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems book series (LNE, volume 677)


In this chapter basic preliminary concepts and results are presented which will be used in the following chapters: t-norms and t-conorms, fuzzy sets, fuzzy relations, fuzzy numbers, triangular fuzzy numbers, fuzzy matrices, abelian linearly ordered groups and others.
