Let be a fuzzy normed vector space. A sequence in X is said to be convergent or converge if there exists an such that for all . In this case, x is called the limit of the sequence and we denote it by .
Let be a fuzzy normed vector space. A sequence in X is called Cauchy if for each and each there exists an such that for all and all , we have .
It is well-known that every convergent sequence in a fuzzy normed vector space is Cauchy. If each Cauchy sequence is convergent, then the fuzzy norm is said to be complete and the fuzzy normed vector space is called a fuzzy Banach space.
We say that a mapping between fuzzy normed vector spaces X and Y is continuous at a point if for each sequence converging to in X, then the sequence converges to . If is continuous at each , then is said to be continuous on X (see [4, 10]).
Definition 1.4 
A fuzzy normed algebra is a fuzzy normed space with algebraic structure such that
