1 Introduction

The applications of mathematics in other disciplines, for example, in informatics, play a key role, and they have represented, in the last decades, one of the purpose of the study of the experts of hyperstructure theory all over the world. Hyperstructure theory was introduced in 1934 by a French mathematician Marty [1], at the 8th Congress of Scandinavian Mathematicians, where he defined hypergroups based on the notion of hyperoperation, began to analyze their properties and applied them to groups. In the following decades and nowadays, a number of different hyperstructures have been widely studied from the theoretical point of view and for their applications to many subjects of pure and applied mathematics by many mathematicians such as in fuzzy sets and rough set theory, optimization theory, theory of discrete event dynamical systems, cryptography, codes, analysis of computer programs, automata, formal language theory, combinatorics, artificial intelligence, probability, graphs and hypergraphs, geometry, lattices and binary relations. In a classical algebraic structure, the composition of two elements is an element, while in an algebraic hyperstructure, the composition of two elements is a set. Several books have been written on hyperstructure theory, see [25]. A recent book on hyperstructures [3] points out their applications in rough set theory, cryptography, codes, automata, probability, geometry, lattices, binary relations, graphs and hypergraphs. Another book [4] is devoted especially to the study of hyperring theory. Several kinds of hyperrings are introduced and analyzed. The volume ends with an outline of applications in chemistry and physics, analyzing several special kinds of hyperstructures: e-hyperstructures and transposition hypergroups.

An algebraic hyperstructure (henceforth simply called a hyperalgebra) is a set endowed with one or more hyperoperations, i.e., multi-valued operations mapping a pair of elements to a set of elements. Hyperalgebras are generalizations of classical algebras, e.g., hypergroup is a generalization of group [2], hyperlattice and superlattice are generalizations of lattice [68] and so on.

As it is well known, in 1965 Zadeh [9] introduced the notion of set μ on a non-empty set X as a function from X to the unite real interval I=[0,1] as a fuzzy set. In 1971, Rosenfeld [10] introduced fuzzy sets in the context of group theory and formulated the concept of a fuzzy subgroup of a group. Since then, many researchers have been engaged in extending the concepts of abstract algebra to the framework of the fuzzy setting (cf. [1116]). The study of fuzzy hyperstructure is an interesting research topic of fuzzy sets and it is applied to the theory of algebraic hyperstructure. Fuzzy hyperalgebras were introduced rather recently. The relations between fuzzy sets and hyperstructures have been already considered by Corsini, Davvaz, Zahedi, Leoreanu-Fotea, Ameri, Borzoei, Hasankhani, Tofan, Kehagias, and many others (see [17, 18]). All these works are based on the use of fuzzy hyperoperations, i.e., a fuzzy hyperalgebra is a set equipped with one or more fuzzy hyperoperations. The concept of fuzzy hyperoperation is a natural extension of crisp hyperoperation: as already mentioned, a crisp hyperoperation maps a pair of elements to a crisp subset of elements; a fuzzy hyperoperation maps a pair of elements to a fuzzy subset. But in fuzzy sets theory, there is no means to incorporate the hesitation or uncertainty in the membership degrees. As an important generalization of the notion of fuzzy sets on a non-empty set X, in 1983, Atanassov introduced in [19, 20] the concept of intuitionistic fuzzy sets on a non-empty set X which give both a membership degree and a non-membership degree. The only constraint on these two degrees is that the sum must be smaller than or equal to 1. The concept has been applied to various algebraic structures (cf. [21, 22]). Since then, the notion of intuitionistic fuzzy sets has been explored by researchers, and a number of theoretical and practical results have appeared. Intuitionistic fuzzy sets as a generalization of fuzzy sets can be useful in situations when description of a problem by a (fuzzy) linguistic variable, given in terms of a membership function only, seems too rough. For example, in decision-making problems, particularly in the case of medial diagnosis, sales analysis, new product marketing, financial services, etc., there is a fair chance of the existence of a non-null hesitation part at each moment of evaluation of an unknown object. The relations between intuitionistic fuzzy sets and algebraic hyperstructures have been already considered by many mathematicians such as Davvaz, Dudek, Jun, Corsini, Zhan, Leoreanu-Fotea etc. (cf. [2326]). In [2731], some relations between fuzzy sets and Boolean algebras are considered.

In this paper, using Atanassov’s idea, we introduce the concepts of generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebras and generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideals of Boolean hyperalgebras. A necessary and sufficient condition for an intuitionistic fuzzy subset of a Boolean hyperalgebra to be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra (hyperideal) is proved. Images and inverse-images of the generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra (hyperideal) under Boolean hyperalgebra homomorphism are studied. We introduce the notion of generalized intuitionistic fuzzy quotient Boolean hyperalgebra and several properties of it are studied.

2 Preliminaries

Recall first the basic terms and definitions from the hyperstructure theory and fuzzy set theory.

A map :H×H P (H) is called hyperoperation or join operation on the set H, where H is a non-empty set and P (H)=P(H){} denotes the set of all non-empty subsets of H.

If xH and A, B are non-empty subsets of H, then

AB= a A , b B ab,Ax=A{x},andxB={x}B.

In general, for a positive integer n, an n-ary hyperoperation β on H is a function β: H n P (H). We say that n is the arity of β. A subset S of H is closed under the n-ary hyperoperation β if ( x 1 ,..., x n ) S n implies that β( x 1 ,..., x n )S. A nullary hyperoperation on H is just an element of P (H); i.e., a non-void subset of H. A hyperalgebraic system or a hyperalgebra H,( β i :iI) is the set H with a collection ( β i |iI) of hyperoperations on H.

A subset S of a hyperalgebra H=H,( β i :iI) is a subhyperalgebra of H if S is closed under each hyperoperation β i for all iI, that is, β i ( a 1 ,, a n i )S, whenever ( a 1 ,, a n i ) S n i .

Definition 2.1 Let X be a non-empty set. A fuzzy subset μ of X is a function μ:X[0,1]. Let μ, λ be two fuzzy subsets of X, we say that μ is contained in λ if μ(x)λ(x), xX.

Definition 2.2 Let μ be a fuzzy subset of a set X, and let t[0,1]. The set μ t ={xX:μ(x)t} is called a level subset of μ.

Definition 2.3 Let H=H,( β i :iI) and H ¯ =H,( β i ¯ :iI) be two similar hyperalgebras. A map h from into H ¯ is called

  1. (i)

    a homomorphism if for every iI and all ( a 1 ,, a n i ) H n i , we have that h( β i ( a 1 ,, a n i )) β i ¯ (h( a 1 ),,h( a n i ));

  2. (ii)

    a good homomorphism if for every iI and all ( a 1 ,, a n i ) H n i , we have that h( β i ( a 1 ,, a n i ))= β i ¯ (h( a 1 ),,h( a n i )).

Let us introduce below Boolean hyperalgebra in a different way (see [32], cf. [3336]).

Definition 2.4 A Boolean hyperalgebra is a hyperstructure (B,,,0,1 , ), where B is a non-empty set, :B×BP(B), :B×BP(B), : BB, 0 and 1 are two distinguished elements such that:

  1. (1)

    aB, aaa, aaa;

  2. (2)

    a, bB, ab=ba, ab=ba;

  3. (3)

    a,b,cB, a(bc)=(ab)c, a(bc)=(ab)c;

  4. (4)

    a,bB, aa(ab), aa(ab);

  5. (5)

    a,bB, aabbab;

  6. (6)

    a,b,cB, a(bc)=(ab)(ac);

  7. (7)

    aB, 0a=a, 0a=0, 11a, 1a=a;

  8. (8)

    aB, a a =1, a a =0.

A Boolean hyperalgebra is said to be strong if

  1. (9)

    a,bB, ab={wB: a w = b w = a b }.

Definition 2.5 Let (B,,,0,1 , ) be a Boolean hyperalgebra. If for any a,bB, bab, then a is not larger than b, and we use ab to stand for.

3 Generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebras

In this section, we introduce the notion of generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebras of a Boolean hyperalgebra and several properties of them are investigated. Several conditions of an intuitionistic fuzzy subset of a Boolean hyperalgebra to be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra are given.

Atanassov introduced in [19, 37] the concept of intuitionistic fuzzy sets defined on a non-empty set X as objects having the form

A= { x , μ A ( x ) , λ A ( x ) | x X } ,

where the functions μ A :X[0,1] and λ A :X[0,1] denote the degree of membership (namely μ A (x)) and the degree of non-membership (namely λ A (x)) of each element xX to the set A respectively, and 0 μ A (x)+ λ A (x)1 for all xX.

Obviously, any ordinary fuzzy set may be written as

A= { x , μ A ( x ) , 1 μ A ( x ) | x X } .

Let A and B be two intuitionistic fuzzy sets on X. The following expressions are defined in [37, 38].

  1. (1)

    AB if and only if μ A (x) μ B (x) and λ A (x) λ B (x) for all xX.

  2. (2)

    A=B if and only if AB and BA.

  3. (3)

    A c ={x, λ A (x), μ A (x)|xX}.

  4. (4)

    AB={x, μ A (x) μ B (x), λ A (x) λ B (x)|xX}.

  5. (5)

    AB={x, μ A (x) μ B (x), λ A (x) λ B (x)|xX}.

  6. (6)

    A={x, μ A (x),1 μ A (x)|xX}.

  7. (7)

    A={x,1 λ A (x), λ A (x)|xX}.

For the sake of simplicity, we use the symbol A=( μ A , λ A ) for an intuitionistic fuzzy set A={x, μ A (x), λ A (x)|xX}.

For any fuzzy set μ of X and any t[0,1], U(μ;t)={xX|μ(x)x} is called an upper bound t-level cut of μ and L(μ;t)={xX|μ(x)x} is called a lower bound t-level cut of μ.

Let f be a mapping from a set X to a set Y. Let A=( μ A , λ A ) be an intuitionistic fuzzy subset of X and B=( μ B , λ B ) be an intuitionistic fuzzy subset of Y. Then the inverse image f 1 (B) of B is the intuitionistic fuzzy set of X defined by f 1 (B)=( f 1 ( μ B ), f 1 ( λ B )), where f 1 ( μ B )(x)= μ B (f(x)) and f 1 ( λ B )= λ B (f(x)). The image f(μ) of μ is the fuzzy subset of Y defined by

f(μ)(y)= { sup { μ ( t ) | t f 1 ( y ) } if  f 1 ( y ) , 0 otherwise

for all yY.

The image f(B) of the intuitionistic fuzzy subset B=( μ B , λ B ) is the intuitionistic fuzzy set in Y defined by f(B)=(f( μ B ), f ( λ B )), where for every yY,

f ( μ B ) ( y ) = { sup { μ B ( t ) | t f 1 ( y ) } if  f 1 ( y ) , 0 otherwise , f ( λ B ) ( y ) = { inf { λ B ( t ) | t f 1 ( y ) } if  f 1 ( y ) , 0 otherwise .

Definition 3.1 A fuzzy subset μ of a Boolean hyperalgebra B is said to be a fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B if for all a,bB,

  1. (1)

    inf t a b μ(t)min{μ(a),μ(b)};

  2. (2)

    inf t a b μ(t)min{μ(a),μ(b)};

  3. (3)

    μ( a )μ(a).

Definition 3.2 A fuzzy subset μ of a Boolean hyperalgebra B is said to be a fuzzy hyperideal of B if for all a,bA,

  1. (1)

    inf t a b μ(t)min{μ(a),μ(b)};

  2. (2)

    inf t a b μ(t)μ(b).

Definition 3.3 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra and t(0,1]. An intuitionistic fuzzy subset A=( μ A , λ A ) of B is said to be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B if for all a,bB,

  1. (1)

    inf x a b μ A (x)min{ μ A (a), μ A (b),t} and sup x a b λ A (x)max{ λ A (a), λ A (b),t};

  2. (2)

    inf x a b μ A (x)min{ μ A (a), μ A (b),t} and sup x a b λ A (x)max{ λ A (a), λ A (b),t};

  3. (3)

    μ A ( a )min{ μ A (a),t} and λ A ( a )max{ λ A (a),t}.

It is obvious that H is the subhyperalgebra of A iff the characteristic function χ H of H is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of A.

Proposition 3.4 Let A=( μ A , λ A ) be an intuitionistic fuzzy subset of a Boolean hyperalgebra B and t(0,1]. If for all a,bB, the following hold:

  1. (1)

    inf x a b μ A (x)min{ μ A (a), μ A (b),t} and sup x a b λ A (x)max{ λ A (a), λ A (b),t};

  2. (2)

    μ A ( a )min{ μ A (a),t} and λ A ( a )max{ λ A (a),t},

then A=( μ A , λ A ) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B.

Proof We have to prove only that condition (2) of Definition 3.3 holds. Indeed, for all a,bB, we have

inf x a b μ A ( x ) = inf y ( a b ) μ A ( y ) min { inf z ( a b ) μ A ( z ) , t } min { min { μ A ( a ) , μ A ( b ) , t } , t } min { μ A ( a ) , μ A ( b ) , t } ,

and

sup x a b λ A ( x ) = sup y ( a b ) λ A ( y ) max { sup z ( a b ) λ A ( z ) , t } max { max { λ A ( a ) , λ A ( b ) , t } , t } max { λ A ( a ) , λ A ( b ) , t } .

So, condition (2) of Definition 3.3 is true. □

Proposition 3.5 Let A=( μ A , λ A ) be an intuitionistic fuzzy subset of a Boolean hyperalgebra B and t(0,1]. If for all a,bB, the following hold:

  1. (1)

    inf x a b μ A (x)min{ μ A (a), μ A (b),t} and sup x a b λ A (x)max{ λ A (a), λ A (b),t};

  2. (2)

    μ A ( a )min{ μ A (a),t} and λ A ( a )max{ λ A (a),t},

then A=( μ A , λ A ) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B.

Proof We have to prove only that condition (1) of Definition 3.3 holds. Indeed, for all a,bB, we have

inf x a b μ A ( x ) = inf y ( a b ) μ A ( y ) min { inf z a b μ A ( z ) , t } min { min { μ A ( a ) , μ A ( b ) , t } , t } min { μ A ( a ) , μ A ( b ) , t }

and

sup x a b λ A ( x ) = sup y ( a b ) λ A ( y ) max { sup z a b λ A ( z ) , t } max { max { λ A ( a ) , λ A ( b ) , t } , t } max { λ A ( a ) , λ A ( b ) , t } .

So, condition (1) of Definition 3.3 is true. □

Proposition 3.6 Let A=( μ A , λ A ) be an intuitionistic fuzzy subset of a Boolean hyperalgebra B. Then A=( μ A , λ A ) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B if and only if U( μ A ;s) and L( λ A ;s) are subhyperalgebras of B for all s(0,t] when they are non-empty.

Proof Let A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B,s(0,t] and a,bU( μ A ;s). Then we have

inf x a b μ A ( x ) min { μ A ( a ) , μ A ( b ) , t } s , inf y a b μ A ( y ) min { μ A ( a ) , μ A ( b ) , t } s ,

and

μ A ( a ) min { μ A ( a ) , t } s.

So, abU( μ A ;s), abU( μ A ;s) and a U( μ A ;s). Therefore U( μ A ;s) is a subhyperalgebra of B. In a similar way, it is shown that L( λ A ;s) is a subhyperalgebra of B.

Conversely, let U( μ A ;s) and L( λ A ;s) be subhyperalgebras of B for all s(0,t]. If there exist a,bB such that

inf x a b μ A (x)<c=min { μ A ( a ) , μ A ( b ) , t } ,

then a,bU( μ A ;c), c(0,t] and inf y a b μ A (y)<c. Since U( μ A ;c) is a subhyperalgebra of B, we have abU( μ A ;c) and inf x a b μ A (x)c. This is impossible, because inf x a b μ A (x)<c. Therefore, for all a,bB, inf x a b μ A (x)min{ μ A (a), μ A (b),t}.

Using the same method, for all a,bB, we have inf x a b μ A (x)min{ μ A (a), μ A (b),t} and μ A ( a )min{ μ A (a),t}.

In a similar way, we can operate for L( λ A ;s).

From all the above, we conclude that A=( μ A , λ A ) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B. □

Proposition 3.7 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra and A=( μ A , λ A ), C=( μ C , λ C ) be generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebras of B. Then AC is also a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B.

Proof Let D=AC. For all a,bB, we have

inf x a b μ D ( x ) = min { inf y a b μ A ( y ) , inf z a b μ C ( z ) } min { min { μ A ( a ) , μ A ( b ) , t } , min { μ C ( a ) , μ C ( b ) , t } } min { min { μ A ( a ) , μ C ( a ) } , min { μ A ( b ) , μ C ( b ) } , t } min { μ D ( a ) , μ D ( b ) , t }

and

sup x a b λ D ( x ) = max { sup y a b λ A ( y ) , sup z a b λ C ( z ) } max { max { λ A ( a ) , λ A ( b ) , t } , max { λ C ( a ) , λ C ( b ) , t } } max { max { λ A ( a ) , λ C ( a ) } , max { λ A ( b ) , λ C ( b ) } , t } max { λ D ( a ) , λ D ( b ) , t } .

Also,

( μ D ) ( a ) min { μ A ( a ) , μ C ( a ) , t } and( λ D ) ( a ) max { λ A ( a ) , λ C ( a ) , t } .

Therefore AC is also a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B. □

Proposition 3.8 Let B, B be two Boolean hyperalgebras and f:B B be a homomorphism. If f is surjective and A=( μ A , λ A ) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B, then f(A) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B .

Proof It is straightforward. □

Proposition 3.9 Let B, B be two Boolean hyperalgebras and f:B B be a homomorphism. If C=( μ C , λ C ) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B , then f 1 (C) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B.

Proof It is straightforward. □

4 Generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideals

In this section, we introduce the notion of generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideals of a Boolean hyperalgebra and several properties of them are investigated. Several conditions of an intuitionistic fuzzy subset of a Boolean hyperalgebra to be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal are given.

Definition 4.1 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra, t(0,1] and A=( μ A , λ A ) be an intuitionistic fuzzy subset of B. Then A is called a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B if for all a,bB, we have

  1. (1)

    inf x a b μ A (x)min{ μ A (a), μ A (b),t} and sup x a b λ A (x)max{ λ A (a), λ A (b),t},

  2. (2)

    inf y a b μ A (y)min{ μ A (b),t} and sup y a b λ A (y)max{ λ A (b),t}.

Proposition 4.2 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra and A=( μ A , λ A ) be an intuitionistic fuzzy subset of B. Then A is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B if and only if U( μ A ;s) and L( λ A ;s) are hyperideals of B for all s(0,t] when they are non-empty.

Proof It is straightforward. □

Proposition 4.3 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra and A=( μ A , λ A ), C=( μ C , λ C ) be two generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideals of B. Then AC is also a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B.

Proof It is straightforward. □

Proposition 4.4 Let B, B be two Boolean hyperalgebras and f:B B be a homomorphism. If f is surjective and A=( μ A , λ A ) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B, then f(A) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B .

Proof It is straightforward. □

Proposition 4.5 Let B, B be two Boolean hyperalgebras and f:B B be a homomorphism. If C=( μ C , λ C ) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B , then f 1 (C) is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B.

Proof It is straightforward. □

Let A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of A. When μ A (0)<t and λ A (0)<t, the intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B is equal to the generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B. In the following, it is assumed that the generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal A=( μ A , λ A ) of B satisfies the conditions μ A (0)t and λ A (0)t.

Proposition 4.6 Let A be a Boolean hyperalgebra and A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B. If a,bB and ab, then μ A (a)min{ μ A (b),t} and λ A (a)max{ λ A (b),t}.

Proof We have μ A (a) inf x a b μ A (x)min{ μ A (b),t} and λ A (a) sup x a b λ A (x)max{ λ A (b),t}. □

Definition 4.7 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra and A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B. If there exists aB such that μ A (a)<t and λ A (a)<t, then A=( μ A , λ A ) is said to be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy proper hyperideal of B.

Proposition 4.8 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra and A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B. Then μ A (1)<t and λ A (1)<t.

5 Generalized intuitionistic fuzzy quotient Boolean hyperalgebra

In this section, we introduce the notion of generalized intuitionistic fuzzy quotient Boolean hyperalgebras and several properties of them are studied.

Let A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B, and let the intuitionistic fuzzy subset [ a ] A =( μ [ a ] A , λ [ a ] A ) of B be defined as follows:

x B , μ [ a ] A ( x ) = min { inf y ( ( a x ) ( a x ) ) μ A ( y ) , t } and λ [ a ] A ( x ) = max { sup y ( ( a x ) ( a x ) ) λ A ( y ) , t } .

We denote B/A={ [ a ] A :aB}.

Proposition 5.1 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra, A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B and [ a ] A , [ b ] A B/A. Then we have [ a ] A = [ b ] A iff inf y ( ( a b ) ( a b ) ) μ A (y)t and sup y ( ( a b ) ( a b ) ) λ A (y)t.

Proof Let [ a ] A = [ b ] A , then we have

min { inf y ( ( a b ) ( a b ) ) μ A ( y ) , t } =min { inf z ( ( b b ) ( b b ) ) μ A ( z ) , t } =min { μ A ( 0 ) , t } =t.

Therefore inf y ( ( a b ) ( a b ) ) μ A (y)t. Also,

max { sup y ( ( a b ) ( a b ) ) λ A ( y ) , t } = max { sup z ( ( b b ) ( b b ) ) λ A ( z ) , t } = max { λ A ( 0 ) , t } = t .

Therefore sup y ( ( a b ) ( a b ) ) λ A (y)t.

On the other hand, for all xB,

μ [ a ] A ( x ) = min { inf y ( ( a x ) ( a x ) ) μ A ( y ) , t } = min { inf y ( ( ( a x ) ( a x ) ) ( b b ) ) μ A ( y ) , t } = min { inf y ( ( a b x ) ( a b x ) ( a b x ) ( a b x ) ) μ A ( y ) , t } min { inf y ( ( a b x ) ( a b x ) ) μ A ( y ) , inf z ( ( a b x ) ( a b x ) ) μ A ( z ) , t } min { inf y ( ( a b ) ( a b ) ) μ A ( y ) , inf z ( ( b x ) ( b x ) ) μ A ( z ) , t } = min { inf y ( ( b x ) ( b x ) ) μ A ( y ) , t } = μ [ b ] A ( x ) .

That is, μ [ a ] A (x) μ [ b ] A (x). Also,

λ [ a ] A ( x ) = max { sup y ( ( a x ) ( a x ) ) λ A ( y ) , t } = max { sup y ( ( ( a x ) ( a x ) ) ( b b ) ) λ A ( y ) , t } = max { sup y ( ( a b x ) ( a b x ) ( a b x ) ( a b x ) ) λ A ( y ) , t } max { sup y ( ( a b x ) ( a b x ) ) λ A ( y ) , sup z ( ( a b x ) ( a b x ) ) λ A ( z ) , t } max { sup y ( ( a b ) ( a b ) ) λ A ( y ) , sup z ( ( b x ) ( b x ) ) λ A ( z ) , t } = max { sup y ( ( b x ) ( b x ) ) λ A ( y ) , t } = λ [ b ] A ( x ) .

That is, λ [ a ] A (x) λ [ b ] A (x).

By the same method, we have μ [ a ] A (x) μ [ b ] A (x) and λ [ a ] A (x) λ [ b ] A (x). Hence μ [ a ] A = μ [ b ] A and λ [ a ] A (x)= λ [ b ] A (x). Therefore [ a ] A = [ b ] A . □

Proposition 5.2 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra, A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of B, a,b, a 1 , b 1 B. Then we have:

  1. (1)

    If μ [ a ] A = μ [ a 1 ] A , μ [ b ] A = μ [ b 1 ] A and λ [ a ] A = λ [ a 1 ] A , λ [ b ] A = λ [ b 1 ] A , then μ [ a b ] A = μ [ a 1 b 1 ] A and λ [ a b ] A = λ [ a 1 b 1 ] A , i.e., [ a b ] A = [ a 1 b 1 ] A ;

  2. (2)

    If μ [ a ] A = μ [ a 1 ] A , μ [ b ] A = μ [ b 1 ] A and λ [ a ] A = λ [ a 1 ] A , λ [ b ] A = λ [ b 1 ] A , then μ [ a b ] A = μ [ a 1 b 1 ] A and λ [ a b ] A = λ [ a 1 b 1 ] A , i.e., [ a b ] A = [ a 1 b 1 ] A ;

  3. (3)

    If μ [ a ] A = μ [ a 1 ] A and λ [ a ] A = λ [ a 1 ] A , then μ [ a ] A = μ [ a 1 ] A and λ [ a ] A = λ [ a 1 ] A , i.e., [ a ] A = [ a 1 ] A .

Proof (1)

inf x ( ( ( a b ) ( a 1 b 1 ) ) ( ( a b ) ( a 1 b 1 ) ) ) μ A ( x ) inf y ( ( ( a b ) ( a 1 b 1 ) ) ( ( a b ) ( a 1 b 1 ) ) ) μ A ( y ) inf z ( ( ( a a 1 b ) ( a a 1 b 1 ) ) ( ( a b b 1 ) ( a 1 b b 1 ) ) ) μ A ( z ) min { inf w ( ( ( a a 1 b ) ( a a 1 b 1 ) ) ) μ A ( w ) , inf h ( ( ( a b b 1 ) ( a 1 b b 1 ) ) ) μ A ( h ) } min { min { inf p ( ( a a 1 ) ( a a 1 ) ) μ A ( p ) , t } , min { inf q ( ( b b 1 ) ( b b 1 ) ) μ A ( q ) , t } } t .

Hence μ [ a b ] A = μ [ a 1 b 1 ] A . Also,

sup x ( ( ( a b ) ( a 1 b 1 ) ) ( ( a b ) ( a 1 b 1 ) ) ) λ A ( x ) sup y ( ( ( a b ) ( a 1 b 1 ) ) ( ( a b ) ( a 1 b 1 ) ) ) λ A ( y ) sup z ( ( ( a a 1 b ) ( a a 1 b 1 ) ) ( ( a b b 1 ) ( a 1 b b 1 ) ) ) λ A ( z ) max { sup w ( ( ( a a 1 b ) ( a a 1 b 1 ) ) ) λ A ( w ) , sup h ( ( ( a b b 1 ) ( a 1 b b 1 ) ) ) λ A ( h ) } max { max { sup p ( ( a a 1 ) ( a a 1 ) ) λ A ( p ) , t } , max { sup q ( ( b b 1 ) ( b b 1 ) ) λ A ( q ) , t } } t .

Hence λ [ a b ] A = λ [ a 1 b 1 ] A . Therefore [ a b ] A = [ a 1 b 1 ] A .

Similarly we can prove (2) and (3). □

Let A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hyperideal of the Boolean hyperalgebra B. The hyperoperations , and the operation ′ of B/A are defined as follows:

For all [ a ] A =( μ [ a ] A , λ [ a ] A ), [ b ] A =( μ [ b ] A , λ [ b ] A )B/A, then

[ a ] A [ b ] A = { x , μ [ a b ] A ( x ) , λ [ a b ] A ( x ) | x B } [ a ] A [ b ] A = { x , μ [ a b ] A ( x ) , λ [ a b ] A ( x ) | x B } ( [ a ] A ) = { x , μ ( [ a ] A ) ( x ) , λ ( [ a ] A ) ( x ) | x B } ,

where

μ [ a b ] A = { μ [ x ] A : x a b } and λ [ a b ] A = { λ [ x ] A : x a b } ; μ [ a b ] A = { μ [ x ] A : x a b } and λ [ a b ] A = { λ [ x ] A : x a b } ; μ ( [ a ] A ) = μ [ a ] A and λ ( [ a ] A ) = λ [ a ] A .

By Proposition 5.2, the above hyperoperations and operation are reasonable.

Proposition 5.3 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra, A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy proper hyperideal of B. Then B/A={B/A;, , , [ 0 ] A , [ 1 ] A } is a Boolean hyperalgebra.

Proof It is easy and omitted. □

Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra, A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B, C=( μ C , λ C ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy proper hyperideal of B. We define an intuitionistic fuzzy subset of A/C as follows:

A/C= { x , μ A / C ( x ) , λ A / C ( x ) | x B } ,

where μ A / C :B/C[0,1]

μ A / C ( [ a ] C ) = sup [ x ] C [ a ] C μ C (x), [ a ] C B/C,

and λ A / C :B/C[0,1]

λ A / C ( [ a ] C ) = inf [ x ] C [ a ] C λ C (x), [ a ] C B/C.

Proposition 5.4 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra, A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B, C=( μ C , λ C ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy proper hyperideal of B, then A/C is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B/C.

Proof (1) [ a ] C , [ b ] C B/C, we have

inf [ x ] C ( [ a ] C [ b ] C ) μ A / C ( [ x ] C ) = inf [ x ] C ( [ a b ] C ) μ A / C ( [ x ] C ) = inf [ x ] C ( [ a b ] C ) sup [ y ] C [ x ] C μ C ( y ) sup [ p ] C [ a ] C , [ q ] C [ b ] C , z p q μ C ( z ) sup [ p ] C [ a ] C , [ q ] C [ b ] C min { μ C ( p ) , μ C ( q ) , t } = min { ( sup [ p ] C [ a ] C μ C ( p ) ) , ( sup [ q ] C [ b ] C μ C ( q ) ) , t } = min { μ A / C ( [ a ] C ) , μ A / C ( [ b ] C ) , t } ,

and [ a ] C , [ b ] C B/C, we have

sup [ x ] C ( [ a ] C [ b ] C ) λ A / C ( [ x ] C ) = sup [ x ] C ( [ a b ] C ) λ A / C ( [ x ] C ) = sup [ x ] C ( [ a b ] C ) inf [ y ] C [ x ] C λ C ( y ) inf [ p ] C [ a ] C , [ q ] C [ b ] C , z p q λ C ( z ) inf [ p ] C [ a ] C , [ q ] C [ b ] C max { λ C ( p ) , λ C ( q ) , t } = max { ( inf [ p ] C [ a ] C λ C ( p ) ) , ( inf [ q ] C [ b ] C μ C ( q ) ) , t } = max { λ A / C ( [ a ] C ) , λ A / C ( [ b ] C ) , t } .
  1. (2)

    For all [ a ] C B/C,

    μ A / C ( ( [ a ] C ) ) = μ A / C ( [ a ] C ) = sup [ x ] C [ a ] C μ C ( x ) sup ( [ x ] C ) ( [ a ] C ) min { μ C ( x ) , t } = min { ( sup [ x ] C [ a ] C μ C ( x ) ) , t } = min { μ A / C ( [ a ] C ) , t } ,

and

λ A / C ( ( [ a ] C ) ) = λ A / C ( [ a ] C ) = inf [ x ] C [ a ] C λ C ( x ) inf ( [ x ] C ) ( [ a ] C ) max { λ C ( x ) , t } = max { ( inf [ x ] C [ a ] C λ C ( x ) ) , t } = max { λ A / C ( [ a ] C ) , t } .

Hence A/C is a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B/C. □

Definition 5.5 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra, A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B, C=( μ C , λ C ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy proper hyperideal of B, then A/C is called generalized intuitionistic fuzzy quotient Boolean hyperalgebra of A with respect to C.

Definition 5.6 Let B, B be two Boolean hyperalgebras, f:B B be a Boolean hyperalgebra homomorphism, A=( μ A , λ A ), C=( μ C , λ C ) be generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebras of B and B , respectively. If f(A)=C, then we say A is homomorphic to C, which is denoted as AC.

Proposition 5.7 Let B be a Boolean hyperalgebra, A=( μ A , λ A ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy subhyperalgebra of B, C=( μ C , λ C ) be a generalized intuitionistic fuzzy proper hyperideal of B. Then AA/C.

Proof Let f:BB/C, f(x)= [ x ] C , xB. For all a,bB, we have

f ( a b ) = [ a b ] C = [ a ] C [ b ] C = f ( a ) f ( b ) , f ( a b ) = [ a b ] C = [ a ] C [ b ] C = f ( a ) f ( b ) , f ( a ) = [ a ] C = ( [ a ] C ) = ( f ( a ) ) .

Hence f is a Boolean hyperalgebra homomorphism.

For all [ a ] C B/C, we have

f ( μ A / C ) ( [ a ] C ) = sup f ( x ) [ a ] C μ C ( x ) = sup [ x ] C [ a ] C μ C ( x ) = μ A / C ( [ a ] C ) ,

and

f ( λ A / C ) ( [ a ] C ) = inf f ( x ) [ a ] C λ C ( x ) = inf [ x ] C [ a ] C λ C ( x ) = λ A / C ( [ a ] C ) .

Hence AA/C. □
