Abstract: A fuzzy set A in a fuzzy topological space (X, ) is said to be fuzzy g -closed set if cl(A) U whenever A U

and U is fgs-open in (X, ). In this paper, we introduce fuzzy g -closed map from a fuzzy topological space X to a

fuzzy topological space Y as the map which maps every fuzzy closed set to a fuzzy g -closed, and notice that the

composition of two fuzzy g -closed maps need not be fuzzy g -closed map. We also obtain some properties of fuzzy g -closed maps.

Key words : Fuzzy Topological space, fuzzy g -closed map, fuzzy g *-closed map and fuzzy g -open map, fuzzy g *- open map.

INTRODUCTION

In the classical paper [19] of 1965, L.A.Zadeh generalized the usual notion of a set by introducing the important and useful notion of fuzzy sets. Subsequently many researchers have worked on various basic concepts from general topology using fuzzy sets and developed the theory of fuzzy topological spaces. The notion of fuzzy sets naturally plays a very significant role in the study of fuzzy topology introduced by C. L. Chang [5].

Fuzzy continuous functions is one of the main topics in fuzzy topology. Various authors introduce various types of fuzzy continuity. The decomposition of fuzzy continuity is one of the many problems in fuzzy topology. Tong [16] obtained a decomposition of fuzzy continuity by introducing two weak notions of fuzzy continuity namely, fuzzy strong semi-continuity and fuzzy precontinuity. Rajamani [9] obtained a decomposition of fuzzy continuity.

In this section, we introduce fuzzy g -closed maps,

fuzzy g -open maps, fuzzy g *-closed maps and

fuzzy g *-open maps in fuzzy topological spaces and obtain certain characterizations of these maps.

PRELIMINARIES

Throughout this paper, (X, ), (Y, ) and (Z, ) (or X, Y and Z) represent fuzzy topological spaces on which no separation axioms are assumed unless otherwise mentioned. For any fuzzy subset A of a space (X, ), the closure of A, the interior of A and the complement of A are denoted by cl(A), int(A) and Ac respectively.

We recall the following definitions which are useful in the sequel.

Definition 2.1

A fuzzy subset A of a space (X, ) is called: fuzzy semi-open set [1] if A cl(int(A))

The complement of fuzzy semi-open set is fuzzy semi-closed.

The fuzzy semi-closure [18] of a fuzzy subset A of X, denoted by scl(A), is defined to be the intersection of all fuzzy semi-closed sets of (X, ) containing A. It is known that scl(A) is a fuzzy semi-closed set. For any fuzzy subset A of an arbitrarily chosen fuzzy topological space, the fuzzy semi-interior [18] of A, denoted by sint(A), is defined to be the union of all fuzzy semi-open sets of (X, ) contained in A.

Definition 2.2

A fuzzy subset A of a space (X, ) is called:

a fuzzy generalized closed (briefly fg-closed) set

[2] if cl(A) U whenever A U and U is fuzzy open in (X, ). The complement of fg-closed set is called fg-open set;a fuzzy -closed set (= f -closed set) [13] if

open in (X, ). The complement of fuzzy – closed set is called fuzzy -open set;

a fuzzy semi-generalized closed (briefly fsg-closed) set [3] if scl(A) U whenever A U and U is fuzzy semi-open in (X, ). The complement of fsg-closed set is called fsg-open set;

a generalized fuzzy semi-closed (briefly fgs- closed) set [11] if scl(A) U whenever A U and U is fuzzy open in (X, ). The complement of fgs- closed set is called fgs-open set;

a fuzzy g -closed set [7] if cl(A) U whenever

A U and U is fgs-open in (X, ). The complement of fuzzy g -closed set is called

fuzzy g -open set;

a fuzzy g*s-closed set [7] if scl(A) U whenever A U and U is fgs-open in (X, ). The complement of fg*s-closed set is called fg*s-open set.

The collection of all fuzzy g -closed sets is

denoted by G C(X).

Remark 2.3[7]

Every fuzzy closed set is fuzzy g -closed set but not conversely.

Example 2.4

Let X = {a, b} with = {0x, A, 1x} where A is fuzzy set in X defined by A(a)=1,A(b)=0 .Then (X, ) is a fuzzy topological space. Clearly B defined by

FUZZY g -INTERIOR AND FUZZY g -CLOSURE

Definition 3.1

For any fuzzy subset A of X, fuzzy g -int(A) is defined as the union of all fuzzy g -open sets contained in A.

i.e., f g -int(A) = {G : G A and G is

fuzzy g -open}.

For every fuzzy subset A of X, we define the fuzzy g -closure of A to be the intersection of all fuzzy g -closed sets containing A.

In symbols, f g -cl(A) = {F : A F

F G C(X)}.

Definition 3.2

Let (X, ) be a fuzzy topological space. Let G be a fuzzy subset of X. Then G is called an fuzzy g – neighborhood of A (briefly, f g -nbhd of A) iff there

exists an f g -open set U of X such that A< U < G.

Definition 3.3

A fuzzy topological space (X, ) is called a

T f -space if every f -closed set in it is fuzzy closed.

T fg-space if every f g -closed set in it is fuzzy

closed.

Example 3.4

Let X = {a, b} with = {0x, , 1x} where is fuzzy set

B(a)=0.5,B(b)=1 is fuzzy g

closed set.

Lemma 2.5[5]

-closed set but not fuzzy

in X defined by (a)=0.4, (b)=0.5 .Then (X, ) is a fuzzy topological space. Clearly (X, ) is a T f -space.

Example 3.5

Let f : (X, ) (Y, ) be a fuzzy function. For fuzzy sets A and B of X and Y respectively, the following statements hold:

ff-1(B) B;

f-1f(A) A;

f(A) (f(A)); (iv) f-1(B) = (f-1(B));

if f is injective, then f-1(f(A)) = A;

if f is surjective, then f f-1(B) = B;

if f is bijective, then f(A) = (f(A)).

Definition 2.6

A fuzzy function f : (X, ) (Y, ) is called

fuzzy closed [5] if the image of every fuzzy closed set of X is a fuzzy closed in Y.

fuzzy open [5] if the image of every fuzzy open set of X is a fuzzy open in Y.

fuzzy continuous [5] if the inverse image of every fuzzy open set in (Y, ) is a fuzzy open set in (X, ).

fuzzy -continuous [13] if the inverse image of

every fuzzy closed Set in (Y, ) is a f -closed set in (X,

).

Let X = {a, b} with = {0x, , 1x} where is fuzzy set in X defined by (a)=0.5, (b)=0.5 .Then (X, ) is a fuzzy topologicalspace. Clearly (X, ) is a T fg -space.

Definition 3.6

A fuzzy map f : (X, ) (Y, ) is called

fuzzy g -continuous [8] if the inverse image of every fuzzy closed set in (Y, ) is f g -closed in (X, ).

fuzzy g -irresolute if the inverse image of every f g -closed set in (Y, ) is f g -closed in (X, ).

strongly fuzzy g -continuous if the inverse image of every f g -open set in (Y, ) is fuzzy open in (X, ).

fuzzy gs-irresolute if f-1(V) is fgs-open in (X, ) for every fgs-open subset V in (Y, ).

Proposition 3.7

If A is fuzzy g -open, then fuzzy g -int(A) = A. But

the converse is not true.

Proposition 3.8

If A is fuzzy g -closed , then fuzzy g -cl(A) = A. But the converse is not true.

Proposition 3.9

For any two fuzzy subsets A and B of (X, ), the following hold:

If A B, then f g -cl(A) f g -cl(B).

f g -cl(A B) f g -cl(A) f g -cl(B).

Definition 3.10

A fuzzy map f : (X, ) (Y, ) is called:

fg-closed if f(V) is fg-closed in (Y, ) for every fuzzy closed set V of (X, ).

fsg-closed if f(V) is fsg-closed in (Y, ) for every fuzzy closed set V of (X, ).

fgs-closed if f(V) is fgs-closed in (Y, ) for every fuzzy closed set V of (X, ).

fg*s-closed if f(V) is fg*s-closed in (Y, ) for every fuzzy closed set V of (X, ).

FUZZY g -CLOSED MAPS We introduce the following definition:

Definition 4.1

A fuzzy map f : (X, ) (Y, ) is said to be fuzzy g -closed if the image of every fuzzy closed set in (X, ) is f g -closed in (Y, ).

Example 4.2

Let X = Y = {a, b} with = {0x , , 1x } where

(a)= 0.5, (b)= 0 and = {0x , , 1x } where (a) =1,

(b)= 0. Then (X, ) and (Y, ) are fuzzy topological spaces. Let f : (X, ) (Y, ) be the identity fuzzy map. Clearly f is a fuzzy g -closed map.

Proposition 4.3

A fuzzy map f : (X, ) (Y, ) is fuzzy g –

closed if and only if fuzzy g -cl(f(A)) f(cl(A)) for every fuzzy subset A of (X, ).

Proof

Let A be a fuzzy closed set in (X, ). Then by hypothesis f g -cl(f(A)) f(cl(A)) = f(A) and so f g – cl(f(A)) = f(A). Therefore f(A) is f g -closed in (Y, ).

Theorem 4.5

A fuzzy map f : (X, ) (Y, ) is fuzzy g –

closed if and only if for each fuzzy subset S of (Y, ) and each fuzzy open set U containing f-1(S) there is a fuzzy g –

open set V of (Y, ) such that S V and f-1(V) U.

Proof

Suppose f is fuzzy g -closed. Let S be a fuzzy

subset of Y and U be a fuzzy open set of (X, ) such that f- 1(S) U. Then V = (f(Uc))c is a fuzzy g -open set

containing S such that f-1(V) U.

For the converse, let F be a fuzzy closed set of (X,

). Then f-1((f(F))c) Fc and Fc is fuzzy open. By assumption, there exists a fuzzy g -open set V in (Y, )

such that (f(F))c V and f-1(V) Fc and so F (f-1(V))c. Hence Vc f(F) f((f-1(V))c) Vc which implies f(F) = Vc. Since Vc is fuzzy g -closed, f(F) is f g -closed and therefore f is f g -closed.

Proposition 4.6

If f : (X, ) (Y, ) is fuzzy gs-irresolute fuzzy g -closed and A is a fuzzy g -closed subset of (X, ), then f(A) is fuzzy g -closed in (Y, ).

Proof

Let U be a fgs-open set in (Y, ) such that f(A)

U. Since f is fgs-irresolute, f-1(U) is a fgs-open set containing A. Hence cl(A) f-1(U) as A is fuzzy g -closed in (X, ). Since f is fuzzy g -closed, f(cl(A)) is an

fuzzy g -closed set contained in the fgs-open set U, which implies that cl(f(cl(A))) U and hence cl(f(A)) U.

Proof

Suppose that f is fuzzy g

-closed and A is a

Therefore, f(A) is a fuzzy g -closed set in (Y, ).

fuzzy subset of X. Then cl(A) is fuzzy closed in X and so f(cl(A)) is fuzzy g -closed in (Y, ). We have f(A) f(cl(A)) and by Propositions 3.8 and 3.9, f g -cl(f(A))

f g -cl(f(cl(A))) = f(cl(A)).

Conversely, let A be any fuzzy closed set in (X,

). Then A = cl(A) and so f(A) = f(cl(A)) f g -cl(f(A)), by hypothesis. We have f(A) f g -cl(f(A)) by Proposition 3.8. Therefore f(A) = f g -cl(f(A)). i.e., f(A) is f g -closed by Proposition 3.8 and hence f is f g – closed.

Proposition 4.4

Let f : (X, ) (Y, ) be a fuzzy map such that f g -cl(f(A)) f(cl(A)) for any fuzzy closed subset A of

Then the image f(A) is f g -closed in (Y, ).

The following example shows that the composition of two fuzzy g -closed maps need not be fuzzy g -closed.

Example 4.7

Let X = Y = Z = {a, b} with = {0x , , 1x } where

(a)= 0.4, (b)= 0 , = {0x , , 1x } where (a) =1, (b)= 0 and = {0x , , , 1x } where (a) = 0.5, (b) = 0. Then (X, ), (Y, ) and (Z, ) are fuzzy topological spaces. Let f : (X, ) (Y, ) be the identity map and g : (Y, ) (Z, ) be the identity fuzzy map. Clearly both f and g are fuzzy g -closed maps but their composition g f : (X, )

(Z, ) is not a fuzzy g -closed map.

Corollary 4.8

Let f : (X, ) (Y, ) be fuzzy g -closed and g

: (Y, ) (Z, ) be fuzzy g -closed and fuzzy gs-

irresolute, then their composition g f : (X, ) (Z, ) is fuzzy g -closed.

Proof

Let A be a fuzzy closed set of (X, ). Then by

Definition 4.14

A fuzzy map f : (X, ) (Y, ) is said to be a

hypothesis f(A) is a fuzzy g -closed set in (Y, ). Since g is both fuzzy g -closed and fgs-fuzzy irresolute by Proposition 4.6, g(f(A)) = (g f) (A) is fuzzy g -closed in (Z, ) and therefore g f is fuzzy g -closed.

Proposition 4.9

Let f : (X, ) (Y, ), g : (Y, ) (Z, ) be fuzzy g -closed maps and (Y, ) be a T fg -space.

Then their composition g f : (X, ) (Z, ) is fuzzy g -closed.

Proof

Let A be a fuzzy closed set of (X, ). Then by assumption f(A) is fuzzy g -closed in (Y, ). Since (Y, ) is a T fg-space, f(A) is fuzzy closed in (Y, ) and again

fuzzy g -open map if the image f(A) is fuzzy g -open in (Y, ) for each fuzzy open set A in (X, ).

Proposition 4.15

For any fuzzy bijection f : (X, ) (Y, ), the following statements are equivalent:

f-1: (Y, ) (X, ) is fuzzy g -continuous.

f is fuzzy g -open map.

f is fuzzy g -closed map.

Proof

(ii). Let U be an fuzzy open set of (X, ). By assumption, (f-1)-1(U) = f(U) is fuzzy g -open in (Y, ) and so f is fuzzy g -open.

(iii). Let F be a fuzzy closed set of (X, ). Then Fc is fuzzy open set in (X, ). By assumption, f(Fc) is

by assumption g(f(A)) is fuzzy g -closed in (Z, ). i.e., (g

f) (A) is fuzzy g -closed in (Z, ) and so g f is fuzzy g -closed.

fuzzy g -open in (Y, ). That is f(Fc) = (f(F))c is

fuzzy g -open in (Y, ) and therefore f(F) is fuzzy g – closed in (Y, ). Hence f is fuzzy g -closed.

Proposition 4.10

If f : (X, ) (Y, ) is fuzzy g

-closed, g : (Y,

(i). Let F be a fuzzy closed set of (X, ). By assumption, f(F) is fuzzy g -closed in (Y, ). But f(F)

) (Z, ) is fuzzy g -closed (resp. fg-closed, fg*s-

closed, fsg-closed and fgs-closed) and (Y, ) is a T fg-

space, thn their composition g f : (X, ) (Z, ) is fuzzy g -closed (resp. fg-closed, fg*s-closed, fsg-closed

and fgs-closed).

Proof

Similar to Proposition 4.9.

Proposition 4.11

Let f : (X, ) (Y, ) be a fuzzy closed map and g : (Y, ) (Z, ) be an fuzzy g -closed map, then their composition g f : (X, ) (Z, ) is fuzzy g -closed.

Proof

Similar to Proposition 4.9.

= (f-1)-1(F) and therefore f-1 is fuzzy g -continuous.

Theorem 4.16

A fuzzy map f : (X, ) (Y, ) is f g -open if and only if for any fuzzy subset S of (Y, ) and for any fuzzy closed set F containing f-1(S), there exists an

f g -closed set K of (Y, ) containing S such that f-1(K)

F.

Proof

Similar to Theorem 4.5.

Corollary 4.17

A fuzzy map f : (X, ) (Y, ) is fuzzy g -open

if and only if f-1( g -cl(B)) cl(f-1(B)) for each fuzzy subset B of (Y, ).

Remark 4.12

If f : (X, ) (Y, ) is a fuzzy g

-closed and g

Proof

Suppose that f is fuzzy g -open. Then for any

: (Y, ) (Z, ) is fuzzy closed, then their composition need not be a fuzzy g -closed map as seen from the

following example.

Example 4.13

Let X = Y = Z = {a, b} with = {0x , , 1x } where

(a)= 0.4, (b)= 0 , = {0x , , 1x } where (a) =1, (b)= 0 and = {0x , , , 1x } where (a) = 0.5, (b) = 0. Then (X, ), (Y, ) and (Z, ) are fuzzy topological spaces. Let f : (X, ) (Y, ) be the identity fuzzy map and g : (Y,

) (Z, ) be the identity fuzzy map. Clearly both f is a fuzzy g -closed map and g is fuzzy closed map but their

fuzzy subset B of Y, f-1(B) cl(f-1(B)). By Theorem 4.16, there exists a fuzzy g -closed set K of (Y, ) such that B K and f-1(K) cl(f-1(B)). Therefore, f-1( g –

cl(B)) (f-1(K)) cl(f-1(B)), since K is a fuzzy g – closed set in (Y, ).

Conversely, let S be any fuzzy subset of (Y, )

and F be any fuzzy closed set containing f-1(S). Put K =

g -cl(S). Then K is a fuzzy g -closed set and S K. By assumption, f-1(K) =

f-1( g -cl(S)) cl(f-1(S)) F and therefore by Theorem

composition

g f : (X, ) (Z, ) is not an fuzzy g -closed map.

, f is fuzzy g -open.

Finally in this section, we define another new class

Analogous to a fuzzy g -closed map, we define a fuzzy g -open map as follows:

of fuzzy maps called f g *-closed maps which are stronger than f g -closed maps.

Special Issue – 2015

Definition 4.18

A fuzzy map f : (X, ) (Y, ) is said to be f g *-closed if the image f(A) is fuzzy g -closed in (Y,

) for every fuzzy g -closed set A in (X, ).

For example the fuzzy map f in Example 4.2 is an f g *-closed map.

Remark 4.19

Since every fuzzy closed set is a fuzzy g -closed set we have f g *-closed map is a f g -closed map. The converse is not true in general as seen from the following example.

Example 4.20

Let X = Y = {a, b} with = {0x , , 1x } where

(a) =1, (b)= 0 and = {0x , , , 1x} where (a) =0.5,

(b)= 0 . Then (X, ) and (Y, ) are fuzzy topological spaces. Let f : (X, ) (Y, ) be the identity fuzzy map. Then f is a f g -closed but it is not f g *-closed map.

Proposition 4.21

A fuzzy map f : (X, ) (Y, ) is f g *-open if and only if f g -cl(f(A)) f( g -cl(A)) for every fuzzy subset A of (X, ).

Proof

Similar to Proposition 4.3.

Analogous to f g *-closed map we can also define f g *-open map.

Proposition 4.22

For any fuzzy bijection f : (X, ) (Y, ), the following statements are equivalent:

f-1 : (Y, ) (X, ) is fuzzy g -irresolute.

f is f g *-open map.

f is f g *-closed map.
