Chapter 4 Fuzzy projectivity on quotient G-modules

4.1 Introduction
The notion of projectivity of modules was developed by Cartan and Eilemberg [11]. Zahedi and Ameri [57] studied about the fuzzy projectivity and injectivity of modules. Shery Fernandez [45] analysed the fuzzy projectivity of modules. As a continuation of these works, here we introduce the concept of fuzzy projectivity of quotient G-modules. In this chapter we discuss the projectivity and relative projectivity of quotient G-modules and the fuzzy projectivity on it.
