Fuzzy set operations
A fuzzy set operation is an operation on fuzzy sets. These operations are generalization of crisp set operations. There is more than one possible generalization. The most widely used operations are called standard fuzzy set operations. There are three operations: fuzzy complements, fuzzy intersections, and fuzzy unions.

Standard fuzzy set operations
Standard complement cA(x) = 1 − A(x) Standard intersection (A ∩ B)(x) = min [A(x), B(x)] Standard union (A ∪ B)(x) = max [A(x), B(x)]

Fuzzy complements
A(x) is defined as the degree to which x belongs to A. Let cA denote a fuzzy complement of A of type c. Then cA(x) is the degree to which x belongs to cA, and the degree to which x does not belong to A. (A(x) is therefore the degree to which x does not belong to cA.) Let a complement cA be defined by a function c : [0,1] → [0,1] c(A(x)) = cA(x)

Axioms for fuzzy complements
Axiom c1. Boundary condition c(0) = 1 and c(1) = 0 Axiom c2. Monotonicity For all a, b ∈ [0, 1], if a < b, then c(a) ≥ c(b) Axiom c3. Continuity c is continuous function. Axiom c4. Involutions c is an involution, which means that c(c(a)) = a for each a ∈ [0,1]

Fuzzy intersections
The intersection of two fuzzy sets A and B is specified in general by a binary operation on the unit interval, a function of the form i:[0,1]×[0,1] → [0,1]. (A ∩ B)(x) = i[A(x), B(x)] for all x.

Axioms for fuzzy intersection
