\(L\)-fuzzy closure systems. (English) Zbl 1195.54015

The paper is a contribution to the theory of fuzzy closure operators and systems initiated in the sixties of the 20. century by Appert and Ky Fan (see e.g. [A. Appert and Ky-Fan, Espaces topologiques intermédiaires. Problème de la distanciation. Préface de M. Fréchet. Actualités scientifiques et industrielles. 1121. Exposés d’analyse générale, XV. Paris: Hermann&Cie. 160 p. (1951; Zbl 0045.43901)]). In this paper the authors follow the line of reasoning proposed by R. Bělohlávek (e.g. [J. Math. Anal. Appl. 262, No. 2, 473–489 (2001; Zbl 0989.54006)]) who proposed the generalization of these concepts by using the structure of the residuated lattices. The main difference is that instead of \(L_k\) closure system defined as a classical family of fuzzy subsets, the notion of \(L\)-fuzzy closure systems is based on \(L\)-subsets of powersets (see e.g. [U. Höhle, J. Math. Anal. Appl 201, No. 3, 786–826 (1996; Zbl 0860.03038)]). The authors also introduce the concepts of strong \(L\)-fuzzy closure systems and operators and find relations between them. The last section of the paper is devoted to the categorical aspects of \(L\)-fuzzy closure spaces and \(L\)-fuzzy closure system spaces and links between them.
