Study of covering properties in fuzzy topology

Aygun, H. (1997). Study of covering properties in fuzzy topology. (Unpublished Doctoral thesis, City, University of London)


This work is devoted to the study of covering properties both in L-fuzzy topological spaces and in smooth L-fuzzy topological spaces , that is the fuzzy spaces in Sostak's sense, where L is a fuzzy lattice . Based on the satisfactory theory of L-fuzzy compactness build up by Warner, McLean and Kudri, good definitions of feeble compactness and P-closedness are introduced and studied. A unification theory for good L-fuzzy covering axioms is provided.

Following the lines of L-fuzzy compactness, we suggest two kinds of L-fuzzy relative compactness as in general topology, study some of their properties and prove that these notions are good extensions of the corresponding ordinary versions.

We also present L-fuzzy versions of R-compactness , weak compactness and 0-rigidity and discuss some of their properties.

By introducing 'a-Scott continuous functions', a 'goodness of extension' criterion for smooth fuzzy topological properties is established. We propose a good definition of compactness, which we call 'smooth compactness' in smooth L-fuzzy topological spaces. Smooth compactness turns out to be an extension of L-fuzzy compactness to smooth L-fuzzy topological spaces. We study some properties of smooth compactness and obtain different characterizations. As an extension of the fuzzy Hausdorffness defined by Warner and McLean, 'smooth Hausdorffness' is introduced in smooth L-fuzzy topological spaces. Good definitions of smooth countable compactness, smooth Lindelofness and smooth local compactness are introduced and some of their properties studied.
