Journal of Inequalities and Applications volume 2019, Article number: 202 (2019)
Abstract
Fibonacci difference matrix was defined by Kara in his paper (Kara in J. Inequal. Appl. 2013:38 2013). Recently, Khan et al. (Adv. Differ. Equ. 2018:199, 2018) using the Fibonacci difference matrix F̂ and ideal convergence defined the notion of \(c_{0}^{I}(\hat{F})\), \(c^{I}(\hat{F})\) and \(l_{\infty }^{I}(\hat{F})\). In this paper, we give the ideal convergence of Fibonacci difference sequence space in intuitionistic fuzzy normed space with respect to fuzzy norm \((\mu ,\nu )\). Moreover, we investigate some basic properties of the said spaces such as linearity, hausdorffness.
Introduction and preliminaries
Let ω, c, \(c_{0}\), \(l_{\infty }\) denote sequence space, convergent, null and bounded sequences respectively, with norm \(\x\_{\infty }= \sup_{k\in \mathbb{N}}x_{k}\). The idea of difference sequence spaces was defined by Kizmaz as follows:
Recently, many authors have made a new approach to construct sequence spaces using matrix domain [2, 3, 8, 10]. Lately, Kara [9] has investigated difference sequence space.
which is derived from the Fibonacci difference matrix \(\hat{F}= \hat{(f_{nk})}\) as follows:
where \((f_{n}), n\in \mathbb{N}\) is the sequence of Fibonacci numbers given by the linear recurrence relation as \(f_{0} = 1 =f_{1}\) and \(f_{n1}+f_{n2}= f_{n}\) for \(n\geq 2\). Quite recently, Khan et al. [13] defined the notion of Iconvergent Fibonacci difference sequence spaces as \(c_{0}^{I}(\hat{F})\), \(c^{I}(\hat{F})\) and \(l_{\infty }^{I}(\hat{F})\). Fibonacci numbers have various applications in the fields of arts, science and architecture. For further details, refer to [4, 11].
Fuzzy logic was first introduced by Zadeh in 1965 [24] and it found its applications in various fields like control theory, artificial intelligence, robotics. Later on many authors [7, 16] investigated fuzzy topology to define fuzzy metric space. As a generalisation of fuzzy sets, Atanassov [1] defined the view of intuitionistic fuzzy sets. Intuitionistic fuzzy normed space [18] and 2normed space [17] are the recent studies in fuzzy theory.
Kostyrko et al. [15] in 1999 generalised the idea of statistical convergence [6, 21] to ideal convergence. Further this idea was investigated by Salat, Tripathy and Ziman [19, 20], Tripathy and Hazarika [22, 23] and many others.
We recall certain definitions which will be useful in this paper.
Definition 1.1
([21])
A sequence \(x=(x_{n}) \in \omega \) is statistically convergent to \(\xi \in \mathbb{R}\) if for every \(\epsilon >0 \) the set \(\{n\in \mathbb{N}:x_{n}\xi \geq \epsilon \}\) has asymptotic density zero. We write st\(\lim x =\xi \). If \(\xi = 0\), then \(x=(x_{n})\) is called st–null.
Definition 1.2
A sequence \(x=(x_{n})\in \omega \) is called statistically Cauchy sequence if, for every \(\epsilon >0\), ∃ a number \(N=N(\epsilon )\) such that
Definition 1.3
([14])
An ideal means a family of sets \(I \subset P(X)\) satisfying the following conditions:

(i)
\(\phi \in I\),

(ii)
\(C\cup D\in I\) for all \(C, D \in I\),

(iii)
for each \(C \in I\) and \(D \subset C\), we have \(D\in I\).
An ideal is said to be nontrivial if \(I\neq 2^{X}\) and admissible if \(\{\{x\}:x\in X\}\subset I\).
Definition 1.4
([13])
A family of sets \(\mathcal{F}\subset P(X)\) is called filter if and only if it satisfies the following conditions:

(i)
\(\phi \notin \mathcal{F}\),

(ii)
\(C, D\in \mathcal{F} \Rightarrow C\cap D\in \mathcal{F}\),

(iii)
for each \(C\in \mathcal{F}\) with \(C\subset D\), we have \(D\in \mathcal{F}\).
Definition 1.5
([15])
A sequence \(x=(x_{n})\) is called Iconvergent to \(\xi \in \mathbb{R}\) if, for every \(\epsilon >0\), the set \(\{n\in \mathbb{N}:x_{n}\xi \geq \epsilon \}\in I\). We write I\(\lim x=\xi \). If \(\xi =0\), then \(x=(x_{n})\) is said to be Inull.
Definition 1.6
([13])
A sequence \(x=(x_{n})\) is said to be ICauchy if for every \(\epsilon > 0\) ∃ a number \(N=N( \epsilon )\) such that the set \(\{n\in \mathbb{N}:x_{n}x_{N}\geq \epsilon \}\in \mathcal{I}\).
Definition 1.7
([14])
A sequence \(x=(x_{k})\) is convergent to ξ with respect to the intuitionistic fuzzy norm \((\mu ,\nu )\) if for every \(\epsilon , t >0\) \(\exists N\in \mathbb{N}\) with \(\mu (x_{k}\xi ,t)>1\epsilon \) and \(\nu (x_{k}\xi ,t)<\epsilon \) for all \(k\geq N\). We write \((\mu ,\nu )\lim x = \xi \).
Definition 1.8
([5])
Consider intuitionistic fuzzy normed space (IFNS) \((X,\mu ,\nu ,\ast ,\diamond )\). A sequence \(x=(x_{k})\) is said to be Cauchy sequence with respect to norm \((\mu ,\nu )\) if, for each \(\epsilon >0\), \(t >0\), there exists \(N\in \mathbb{N}\) such that \(\mu (x_{k}x_{l},t) > 1\epsilon \) and \(\nu (x_{k}x_{l})<\epsilon \) for all \(k,l\geq N\).
Definition 1.9
([12])
Let \((X,\mu ,\nu ,\ast , \diamond )\) be IFNS. A sequence \(x=(x_{k})\in \omega \) is called Iconvergent to ξ with respect to the intuitionistic norm \((\mu ,\nu )\) if for every ϵ, \(t > 0\) if the set \(\{k\in \mathbb{N}: \mu (x _{k}\xi ,t)\leq 1\epsilon \mbox{ or }\nu (x_{k}\xi ,t)\geq \epsilon \} \in I\). We write \(I^{(\mu ,\nu )}\mbox{}\lim x=\xi \).
Definition 1.10
([13])
A sequence \(x=(x_{k})\in \omega \) is said to be Fibonacci Iconvergent to \(\xi \in \mathbb{R}\) if, for every \(\epsilon >0\), the set \(\{k\in \mathbb{N}:\hat{F}_{k}(x) \xi  \geq \epsilon \}\in I\), where I is an admissible ideal.
Definition 1.11
([13])
Consider an admissible ideal I. Sequence \(x=(x_{k})\in \omega \) is Fibonacci ICauchy if, for every \(\epsilon > 0\), \(\exists N=N(\epsilon )\) such that \(\{k\in \mathbb{N}:\hat{F}_{k}(x)\hat{F}_{N}(x)\geq \epsilon \}\in I\).
Intuitionistic fuzzy Iconvergent Fibonacci difference sequence spaces
In the following section, we introduce a new type of sequence spaces whose F̂ transform is Iconvergent with respect to the intuitionistic norm \((\mu ,\nu )\). Further we prove certain properties of these spaces such as hausdorfness, first countability. Throughout this paper, I is an admissible ideal. We define
We introduce an open ball with centre x and radius r with respect to t as follows:
Remark 2.1

(i)
For \(p_{1} ,p_{2}\in (0,1)\) such that \(p_{1} > p_{2}\), there exist \(p_{3} , p_{4}\in (0,1)\) with \(p_{1}* p_{3} \geq p_{2}\) and \(p_{1}\geq p_{4} \diamond p_{2}\).

(ii)
For \(p_{5}\in (0,1)\), there exist \(p_{6} ,p_{7}\in (0,1)\) such that \(p_{6}\ast p_{6} \geq p_{5}\) and \(p_{7}\diamond p_{7} \leq p_{5}\).
Theorem 2.1
The spaces \(S_{0(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) and \(S_{(\mu , \nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) are vector spaces over \(\mathbb{R}\).
Proof
Let us show the result for \(S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) and the proof for another space will follow on the similar lines. Let \(x=(x_{k})\) and \(y=(y_{k})\in S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\). Then by definition there exist \(\xi _{1}\) and \(\xi _{2}\), and for every ϵ, \(t > 0\), we have
where α and β are scalars.
Define \(E=A\cup B\) so that \(E\in I\). Thus \(E^{c}\in \mathcal{F}(I)\) and therefore is nonempty. We will show
Let \(n\in E^{c}\). Then
Consider
and
Thus \(E^{c}\subset \{k\in \mathbb{N}: \mu (\alpha \hat{F_{k}}(x)+ \beta \hat{F_{k}}(y)(\alpha \xi _{1}+ \beta \xi _{2}),t)>1\epsilon \mbox{ or }\nu (\alpha \hat{F_{k}}(x)+\beta \hat{F_{k}}(y)(\alpha \xi _{1} + \beta \xi _{2}),t)< \epsilon \}\). \(E^{c}\in \mathcal{F}(I)\), therefore by definition of filter, the set on the righthand side of the above equation belongs to \(\mathcal{F}(I)\) so that its complement belongs to I. This implies \((\alpha x+ \beta y)\in S_{(\mu , \nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\). Hence \(S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) is a vector space over \(\mathbb{R}\). □
Theorem 2.2
Every open ball \(B_{x}(r,t)(\hat{F})\) is an open set in \(S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\).
Proof
We have defined open ball as follows:
Let \(z=(z_{k})\in B_{x}(r,t)(\hat{F})\) so that \(\mu (\hat{F_{k}}(x) \hat{F_{k}}(z),t)> 1r\) and \(\nu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\hat{F_{k}}(z),t)< r\). Then there exists \(t_{0}\in (0,t)\) with \(\mu (\hat{F_{k}}(x) \hat{F_{k}}(z),t_{0})>1r \) and \(\nu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\hat{F_{k}}(z),t _{0})< r\). Put \(p_{0}= \mu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\hat{F_{k}}(z),t_{0})\), so we have \(p_{0} > 1r\), there exists \(s\in (0,1)\) such that \(p_{0}> 1s> 1r\). Using Remark 2.1(i), given \(p_{0}> 1s\), we can find \(p_{1}, p_{2}\in (0,1)\) with \(p_{0}\ast p_{1} > 1s\) and \((1p_{0}) \diamond (1p_{2})< s\). Put \(p_{3} = \max (p_{1}, p_{2})\). We will prove \(B_{z}(1 p_{3}, tt_{0})(\hat{F})\subset B_{x}(r,t)(\hat{F})\). Let \(w=(w_{k})\in B_{z}(1p_{3}, t  t_{0})(\hat{F})\). Hence
and
Hence \(w\in B_{x}(r,t)(\hat{F})\) and therefore \(B_{z}(1p_{3},t t _{0})(\hat{F})\subset B_{x}(r,t)(\hat{F})\). □
Remark 2.2
Let \(S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F}\) be IFNS. Define \(\tau _{(\mu ,\nu )} ^{I}(\hat{F})=\{A\subset S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\mbox{: for given } x\in A\), we can find \(t>0\) and \(0 < r <1\) such that \(B_{x}(r,t)( \hat{F})\subset A\}\). Then \(\tau _{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) is a topology on \(S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\).
Remark 2.3
Since \(\{B_{x}(\frac{1}{n},\frac{1}{n})(\hat{F}): n\in \mathbb{N}\}\) is a local base at x, the topology \(\tau _{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) is first countable.
Theorem 2.3
The spaces \(S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) and \(S_{0(\mu , \nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) are Hausdorff.
Proof
Let \(x,y\in S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) with x and y to be different. Then \(0< \mu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\hat{F}(y),t) <1\) and \(0<\nu (\hat{F}(x)\hat{F}_{k}(y),t)< 1\). Put \(\mu (\hat{F_{k}}(x) \hat{F}_{k}(y),t) = p_{1}\) and \(\nu (\hat{F}_{k}(x)\hat{F}{k}(y),t) = p_{2}\) and \(r = \max (p_{1}, 1 p_{2})\). Using Remark (2.1(ii)) for \(p_{0}\in (r, 1)\), we can find \(p_{3}, p_{4}\in (0,1)\) such that \(p_{3} \ast p_{3} \geq p_{0}\) and \((1 p_{4})\diamond (1 p_{4}) \leq 1 p_{0}\). Put \(p_{5} = \max (p_{3}, p_{4})\). Clearly \(B_{x}(1 p _{5},\frac{t}{2})(\hat{F})\cap B_{y}(1 p_{5},\frac{t}{2})(\hat{F})= \phi \). Let on the contrary \(z\in B_{x}(1  p_{5},\frac{t}{2})( \hat{F})\cap B_{y}(1  p_{5},\frac{t}{2})(\hat{F})\). Then we have
and
which is a contradiction. Therefore \(S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) is a Hausdorff space. The proof for \(S_{0(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) follows similarly. □
Theorem 2.4
Let \(S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) be IFNS and \(\tau _{(\mu , \nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) be a topology on \(S_{\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\). A sequence \((x_{k})\in S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) converges to ξ iff \(\mu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\xi ,t) \rightarrow 1\) and \(\nu ( \hat{F_{k}}(x)\xi ,t) \rightarrow 0\) as \(k\rightarrow \infty \).
Proof
Suppose \(x_{k}\rightarrow \xi \), then given \(0< r < 1\) there exists \(k_{0}\in \mathbb{N}\) such that \((x_{k})\in B_{x}(r,t)(\hat{F})\) for all \(k\geq k_{0}\) given \(t>0\). Hence, we have \(1\mu (\hat{F_{k}}(x) \xi ,t)< r\) and \(\nu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\xi,t)< r\). Therefore \(\mu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\xi,t)\rightarrow 1\) and \(\nu ( \hat{F_{k}}(x)\xi ,t)\rightarrow 0\) as \(k \rightarrow \infty \).
Conversely, if \(\mu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\xi ,t)\rightarrow 1\) and \(\nu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\xi ,t)\rightarrow 0\) as \(k\rightarrow \infty \) holds for each \(t>0\). For \(0< r< 1\), there exists \(k_{0}\in \mathbb{N}\) such that \(1\mu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\xi ,t)< r\) and \(\nu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\xi ,t)< r\) for all \(k\geq k_{0}\), which implies \(\mu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\xi ,t) > 1r\) and \(\nu (\hat{F_{k}}(x)\xi ,t) < r\). Thus \(x_{k}\in B_{x}(r,t)(\hat{F})\) for all \(k\geq k_{0}\) and hence \(x_{k}\rightarrow \xi \). □
Conclusion
In the present article, we have defined a new kind of sequence spaces \(S_{0(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) and \(S_{(\mu ,\nu )}^{I}(\hat{F})\) using Fibonacci difference matrix F̂. We studied certain elementary properties and topological properties like linearity, first countability, hausdorfness. These results will give new approach to deal with the problems in science and engineering. The present article is a useful tool to define ideal convergence of generalised Fibonacci difference sequence in intuitionistic fuzzy normed space given by
where \(\hat{F}(r,s)=\{f_{nk}(r,s)\}\) is a double generalised matrix defined as follows:
\(k,n\in \mathbb{N}\) and \(r,s\in \mathbb{R}\setminus \{0\}\). We can study the topological properties of these spaces which will provide a better method to deal with vagueness and inexactness occurring in various fields of science, engineering and economics. Moreover, this theory can be helpful in dealing with problems in population dynamics, quantum particle physics particularly in connections with string and \(\epsilon ^{\infty }\) theory of ElNaschie.
