Zadeh in his classi- cal paper[161]. After the discovery of the fuzzy subsets, much attention has been paid to generalize the basic concepts of classical topology in fuzzy setting and thus a modern theory of fuzzy topology is developed. The notion of fuzzy sub- sets naturally plays a significant role in the study of fuzzy topology which was introduced by C.L. Chang[31] in 1968. In 1980, Ming and Ming[73], introduced the concepts of quasi-coincidence and q-neighbourhoods by which the extensions of functions in fuzzy setting can very interestingly and effectively be carried out. Since then many concepts of General Topology are being extend to Fuzzy Topol- ogy.Fuzzy semiopen sets were first introduced and studied by K.K.Azad[10] in 1981.In 1991, Bin Shahna[19] extended the concepts of preopen and α-open sets in Fuzzy Topology.In 1998,S.S.Thakur and S.Singh [152] introduced the concept of Fuzzy semipreopen sets in Fuzzy Topology.The generalization of fuzzy general- ized open(resp.fuzzy generalized closed) sets and fuzzy generalized continuity was extensively studied in recent years by S.S.Thakur, R.Malviya, H.Maki,T.Fukutaka,
  • “DEFINITION BANK” IN FUZZY TOPOLOGY 3 M.Kojima, H.Harade,R.K.Saraf, M.Caldas and M.Khanna.Fuzzy continuity of Chang in 1968, it has been proved to be of fundamental importance in the realm of fuzzy topology.Along with this, many researchers[10],[?],[169],[?],[47], [80]and[160] have studied fuzzy non-continuity. One of them [169] introduced and studied fuzzy pre semiopen sets and fuzzy pre semicontinuus mappings in fuzzy topological spaces. Definitions of Fuzzy sets and their fuzzy neighbourhoods are available in Section I. In Section II, collection of definitions concern with the fuzzy separation axioms is made. Definitions concern with the fuzzy mappings (fuzzy functions) are available in Section III. In this survey article we made an attempt of bringing all available definitions in ”Fuzzy Topology” under single umbrella, called “Definition Bank In Fuzzy Topology” . We also suggest some new definitions w.r.t the above dis- cussions, marked in the list as DefinitionNEW . Hence, one can observe the ”New Definitions”.Regarding the “Definition Bank in Fuzzy Topology ”, suggestions, cor- rections or additions to either list would be gratefully received. Throughout this paper by (X, τ)or simply by X we mean a fuzzy topological space (fts, shorty) due to Chang [31] we give the following definitions : Definition 0.0.1. (a) Let X be a non-empty set and I the unit interval [0,1]. A fuzzy set in X is an element of the set IX of all functions from X to I. (b) 0X and 1X denote the fuzzy sets given by 0X(x) = 0 , for all x ∈ X and 1X(x) = 1 , for all x ∈ X . (c) Equality of two fuzzy sets λ and µ on X is determined by the usual equality condition for mappings, which is given by λ = µ ⇒ (for all x ∈ X,λ(x) = µ(x). (d) A fuzzy subset λ on X is said to be a subset of a fuzzy β on X written as λ ≤ β, if λ(x) ≤ β(x), for all x ∈ X (e) The complement of a fuzzy set λ on X is given by Co(λ) or simply λ = 1 − λ (f) A fuzzy topology τ on X is collection of subsets of IX , such that (i)0X,1X ∈ τ , (ii)if λ, β ∈ τ, then β ∈ τ, (iii)if λi ∈ τ for each i ∈ Λ , then i∈Λ λi ∈ τ.
  • 4 GOVINDAPPA NAVALAGI The pair (X, τ) is called a fuzzy topological space (in short, fts or fuzzy space ). (g) Closure of a fuzzy set λ is denoted by Cl(λ) or λ bar , and is given by Cl(λ) = {µ : µisafuzzyclosedsetandλ ≤ µ} The interior of λ is denoted by Int(λ) , and is given by Int(λ) = {ν : νisafuzzyopensetandλ ≥ ν}. (h) A fuzzy set λ in a fts (X, τ) is a neighbourhood ,or nbhd for short, of a fuzzy set µ iff there exists an open fuzzy set β such that µ ⊂ β ⊂ λ. (i) Let λ and β be two fuzzy sets in a fts (X, τ), and let β ⊂ λ.Then β is called an interior fuzzy set of λ iff λ is a nbhd of β.The union of all interior fuzzy sets of λ is called the interior of λ and is denoted by λo . R.H.Warren in 1977 and 1978 , defined the following. Definition 0.0.2. [156] (a) Let λ be a fuzzy set in a fts (X, τ).A point x ∈ X is called a fuzzy limit point of λ iff whenever λ(x) = 1, then for each x∃y ∈ X − {x} such that x(y)Λa(y) = 0 ; or whenever a(x) = 1, then a−1 (x) > 0 and for each open x satisfying 1−x = a(x)∃y ∈ X − x such that x(y)Λa(y) = 0. The fuzzy derived fuzzy set of a (denoted by a’ ) and defined as : a’(x) = a− (x)ifxisafuzzylimitpointofa, = 0otherwise. (b) Let (X, τ) be a fts and let A ⊂ X .Then the family, τA = {g|A : g ∈ τ} is a fuzzy topology on A, where g|A is the restriction of g to A,called the relative fuzzy topology on A or the fuzzy topology on A induced by the fuzzy topology τ on X.Note that (A, τA) is called a subspace of (X, τ). In 1973,J.A.Goguen et al[44] the following is given: Definition 0.0.3. Let τ be a fuzzy topology on X and let B, S ⊂ τ .Then B is called a basis for τ iff each element of τ is the supremum of members of B.Also, S is called a subbasis for τ iff the family of all finite infimums of elements of S is a basis for τ. Due to Chang[31] and Goguen et alGSW1 the following is given:
  • “DEFINITION BANK” IN FUZZY TOPOLOGY 5 Definition 0.0.4. Let f be a function from X to Y .Let b be a fuzzy set in Y and let a be a fuzzy set in X.Then the inverse image of b under f4isthefuzzysetf−1 (b) in X defined by f−1 (b)(x) = b(f(x)) for x ∈ X i.e., f−1 (b) = bof.The image of a under f is the fuzzy set f(a) in Y defined by f(a)(y) = {a(x) : f(x) = y} for y ∈ Y i.e., f(a)(y) = Sup{a(x) : x ∈ f−1 (y)}. In 1973,G.J.Nazaroff[102]have defined the fuzzy closure of a fuzzy set : Definition 0.0.5. Let a be a fuzzy set in a fts (X, τ).Then {b : bisaclosedfuzzysetinXandb ≥ a} is called the closure of a and is denoted by a− . In 1977,R.H.Warren[157] have defined the fuzzy boundary set and fuzzy bound- ary operators in the following. Definition 0.0.6. Let a be a fuzzy set in a fts (X, τ).The fuzzy boundary of a , denoted by ab , is defined as the infimum of all closed fuzzy sets d in X with the property : d(x) ≥ a− (x) for all x ∈ X for which (a− (1 − a)− )(x) > 0 . Note: Clearly,(i) ab is a fuzzy closed set and ab ≤ a− ;(ii)(a− (1 − a)− )(x) = 0 , then ab = {allfuzzyclosedsetsinX} = 0. Note:In a fts (X, τ), if α(a) = ab for each fuzzy set a Part 1. Fuzzy Sets and Fuzzy Neighbourhoods 1.1. Fuzzy Regular open and fuzzy regular closed sets Definition 1.1.1. A fuzzy set λ in a fts X is called, (1)Fuzzy regular open[10] if λ = Int(Cl(λ)). (2) Fuzzy regular closed[10] if λ = Cl(Int(λ)). A fuzzy point in X with support x ∈ X and value p(0 < p ≤ 1) is denoted by xp. Two fuzzy sets λ and β are said to be quasi-coincident (q-coincident, shorty) denoted by λqβ, if there exists x ∈ X such that λ(x) + β(x) > 1[80] and by − q we denote ” is not q-coincident ” . It is known[80] that λ ≤ β if and only if λq(1 − β).
  • 6 GOVINDAPPA NAVALAGI A fuzzy set λ is said to be q-neighbourhood (q-nbd) of xp if there is a fuzzy open set µ such that xpqµ, and µ ≤ λ if µ(x) ≤ λ(x) for all x ∈ X. The interior, closure and the complement of a fuzzy set λin X are denoted by Int(λ), Cl(λ) and 1 − λ = λc respectively. Recall that a fuzzy point xp is said to be a fuzzy θ-cluster point of a fuzzy set λ[80], if and only if for every fuzzy open q-nbd µ of xp , Cl(µ) is q-coincident with λ. The set of all fuzzy θ-cluster points of λ is called the fuzzy θ-closure of λ and will be denoted by Clθ(λ). A fuzzy set λ will be called θ-closed if and only if λ = Clθ(λ). The complement of a fuzzy θ-closed set is called of fuzzy θ-open and the θ-interior of λ denoted by Intθ(λ) is defined as Intθ(λ) = {xp : for some fuzzy open q-nbd, β of xp, Cl(β) ≤ λ}. Definition 1.1.2. [161] Let X be a non-empty set and I be the unit interval [0,1]. A fuzzy set in X is a mapping from X into I.The null set 0 (zero) is the mapping from X into I assumes only the value 0 and the whole set 1, is the mapping from X into I which takes the value 1 only. Definition 1.1.3. [161] A fuzzy set A is contained in a fuzzy set B denoted by A ≤ B iff A(x) ≤ B(x) , for each x ∈ X.The complement Ac of a fuzzy set A of X is (1 − A defined by (1 − A)c (x) = 1 − A(X), for each x ∈ X.If A is a fuzzy set of X and B is a fuzzy set of Y then AxB is a fuzzy set of XxY , defined by (AxB)(x, y) = (A(x), B(y)), for each (x, y) ∈ XxY . Definition 1.1.4. [31] Let f : X → Y be a mapping .If A is a fuzzy set of Y , then f−1 (A) is a fuzzy set of X , defined by f−1 (A)(x) = A(f(x)) for each x ∈ X. Definition 1.1.5. [93] (i)Symbole Ao will stand for the support of A in X ; (ii) Symbol, Cλ will stand for the fuzzy set of X having the value λ at each point in X, where λ ∈ (0, 1]. Definition 1.1.6. [58] A fuzzy set on X is called a fuzzy singleton iff it takes the value 0 for all points x ∈ X except 1.
  • “DEFINITION BANK” IN FUZZY TOPOLOGY 7 Note that the point at which a fuzzy singleton takes the non-zero value is called the support of the singleton and the corresponding of (0,1] , its value. A fuzzy singleton with the value 1 is called crisp singleton. 1.2. Fuzzy semi (pre, α, semipre)-sets and their neighbourhoods Definition 1.2.1. A fuzzy set λ in a fts X is called, (1) Fuzzy semiopen[10] if λ ≤ Cl(Int(λ)) (in short Fs-open set). (2) Fuzzy semiclosed[10] if Int(Cl(λ)) ≤ λ (in short Fs-closed set). (3) Fuzzy preopen[19] if λ ≤ Int(Cl(λ)). (4) Fuzzy preclosed[19] if Cl(Int(λ)) ≤ λ. (5) Fuzzy α-open[19]if λ ≤ Int(Cl(Int(λ))) (in short Fα-open ). (6) Fuzzy semipreopen[145]if λ ≤ Cl(Int(Cl(λ))) (in short Fsp-open) (7) Fuzzy α-closed[19]if Cl(Int(Cl(λ))) ≤ λ (in short Fα-closed). (8) Fuzzy semipreclosed =β-closed [145]if Int(Cl(Int(λ) ≤ λ (in short Fsp- closed) The family of all fuzzy semiopen (fuzzy preopen, fuzzy α-open and fuzzy semipreopen) sets of X is denoted by FSO(X) (resp. FPO(X), Fα(X) and FSPO(X)). Recall that if, λ be a fuzzy set in a fts X then pCl(λ) = {β : β ≥ λ, β is fuzzy preclosed} (resp. pInt(λ) = {β : λ ≥ β, β is fuzzy preopen}) is called a fuzzy preclosure of λ (resp. fuzzy preinterior of λ)[19]and[140]. Definition 1.2.2. [160] The fuzzy semiclosure of A , denoted by sCl(A) ,is defined by the intersection of all fuzzy semiclosed sets containing A. [160] The fuzzy semiinterior of A , denoted by sInt(A) , is defined by the union of all fuzzy semiopen sets contained in A. Definition 1.2.3. [80, 92] A fuzzy subset A of an fts X is said to be fuzzy semi- regular ,if it is both fuzzy semioen set and fuzzy semiclosed set. The family of all fuzzy semi-regular sets of an fts X is denoted by FSO(X)
  • 8 GOVINDAPPA NAVALAGI Definition 1.2.4. [80, 92] A fuzzy point xβ of X is said to be in the fuzzy semi- θ-closure of A , denoted by sClθ(A), if A ∩ sClU = 0 for every U ∈ FSO(X) containing xβ. Note that A is called fuzzy semi-θ-closed[92] if A = sClθ(A).The complement of a fuzzy semi-θ-closed set is called fuzzy semi-θ-open set. S.S.Thakur and S.Singh[145]have defined semi-preclosure and semi-preinterior of a fuzzy subset A of fts X as follows; Definition 1.2.5. [145] A fuzzy set λ in a fts X is called: (i)fuzzy semipreopen if there exists a fuzzy preopen set such that ≤ λ ≤ Cl. (ii)fuzzy semipreclosed if there exists a fuzzy preclosed set such that Int ≤ λ ≤. Definition 1.2.6. [145] spCl(A) = Inf{B : B ≥ A; BisFsp − closedsetinX} spInt(A) = Sup{B : B ≤ A; BisFsp − opensetofX}. Definition 1.2.7. Let A be a fuzzy set in an fts X and xβ be a fuzzy point in X.Then, (i) A is called a fuzzy pre-q-nbd of xβ[106]if there exists a fuzzy preopen subset B in X such that xβqB ≤ A. (ii)a fuzzy pre-θ-nbd[104]ofxβ if there exists fuzzy preopen pre-q-nbd B of xβ such that pCl(B)q− (1 − A. Definition 1.2.8. [169] A fuzzy set A in X is said to be (i)fuzzy pre-semi-open if A ≤ (A− )o ; (ii) fuzzy pre-semi-closed if A ≥ (Ao )−. Definition 1.2.9. [167] A fuzzy set A in X is called a fuzzy pre-semi-nbd of a fuzzy point xα in X iff there exists a fuzzy pre-semiopen set B in X such that xα ∈ B ≤ A. Definition 1.2.10. [167] A fuzzy set A in X is called a fuzzy pre-semi-q-nbd of a fuzzy point xα in X iff there exists a fuzzy pre semiopen set B in X such that xαqB ≤ A.
  • “DEFINITION BANK” IN FUZZY TOPOLOGY 9 [167] Every fuzzy q-nbd of a fuzzy point is always a fuzzy semi-q-nbd of the fuzzy point and every fuzzy semi-q-nbd of a fuzzy point is always a fuzzy pre semi-q-nbd of the fuzzy point. Definition 1.2.11. [70] A fuzzy set λ in a fts X is called : (i)fuzzy -β-open if λ ≤ ClIntCl(λ) ; (ii) fuzzy-β-closed if λc is a fuzzy -β-open ,or equivalently, if IntClInt(λ) ≤ λ. Definition 1.2.12. [76] Let A be a fuzzy set of an fts (X, τ).Then A is called a fuzzy less strongly semiopen set iff there exists B ∈ τ such that B ≤ A ≤ sInt(sClB) Definition 1.2.13. [76] Let A be a fuzzy set of an fts (X, τ).Then A is called a fuzzy less strongly semiclosed set iff there exists fuzzy closed set B such that sCl(sInt(B) ≤ A ≤ B Definition 1.2.14.

Fuzzy generalized open (semiopen, preopen, α-open etc.) and fuzzy generalized closed (semiclosed, preclosed, α-closed etc.) sets For the first time the concept of fuzzy generalized closed sets was considered by S.S.Thakur and R.Malviya[150]

The complement of a Fg-closed set is called Fg-open set. In 1998 Maki ,Fukutaka,Kojima and Harada[69] introduced the notion of fuzzy semi -generalized closed (in short Fsg-closed) sets by replacing the closure operator by semi-closure operator and by replacing openness of the superset with semiopen- ness, Definition 1.3.2. A fuzzy subset A of a fts X is called Fsg-closed if sClA ≤ B whenever A ≤ B and B is fuzzy semiopen . NOTE: Fg-closed and Fsg-closed sets are independent notions and none of them implies the other. In 1998, Maki and others in [69] have also introduced the concepts of Fuzzy generalized semi-closed sets (in short Fgs-closed). Definition 1.3.3. [150] A fuzzy subset A of a fts X is called Fgs-closed if sClA ≤ B whenever A ≤ B and B is fuzzy open . NOTE:Authors have mentioned that the both Fg-closed and Fsg-closed sets imply Fgs-closedness.

The complement of a Fgα-closed set is called Fgα-open set. Definition 1.3.12. NEW A fuzzy subset A of X is called a Fsg*-closed (resp. Fg*s-closed, Fg ∗ α-closed, Fαg∗-closed, Fg*p-closed, Fg*sp-closed, Fθ-g*-closed and Fδ-g*-closed) set if sclA ≤ U (resp. sclA ≤ U, clα ≤ U, clα ≤ U, pclA ≤ U, spclA ≤ U, clθ ≤ U and clδ ≤ U) whenever A ≤ U and U is Fsg-open (resp.

Zadeh in his classi- cal paper[161]. After the discovery of the fuzzy subsets, much attention has been paid to generalize the basic concepts of classical topology in fuzzy setting and thus a modern theory of fuzzy topology is developed. The notion of fuzzy sub- sets naturally plays a significant role in the study of fuzzy topology which was introduced by C.L. Chang[31] in 1968. In 1980, Ming and Ming[73], introduced the concepts of quasi-coincidence and q-neighbourhoods by which the extensions of functions in fuzzy setting can very interestingly and effectively be carried out. Since then many concepts of General Topology are being extend to Fuzzy Topol- ogy.Fuzzy semiopen sets were first introduced and studied by K.K.Azad[10] in 1981.In 1991, Bin Shahna[19] extended the concepts of preopen and α-open sets in Fuzzy Topology.In 1998,S.S.Thakur and S.Singh [152] introduced the concept of Fuzzy semipreopen sets in Fuzzy Topology.The generalization of fuzzy general- ized open(resp.fuzzy generalized closed) sets and fuzzy generalized continuity was extensively studied in recent years by S.S.Thakur, R.Malviya, H.Maki,T.Fukutaka,

One of them [169] introduced and studied fuzzy pre semiopen sets and fuzzy pre semicontinuus mappings in fuzzy topological spaces. Definitions of Fuzzy sets and their fuzzy neighbourhoods are available in Section I. In Section II, collection of definitions concern with the fuzzy separation axioms is made. Definitions concern with the fuzzy mappings (fuzzy functions) are available in Section III. In this survey article we made an attempt of bringing all available definitions in ”Fuzzy Topology” under single umbrella, called “Definition Bank In Fuzzy Topology” . We also suggest some new definitions w.r.t the above dis- cussions, marked in the list as DefinitionNEW . Hence, one can observe the ”New Definitions”.Regarding the “Definition Bank in Fuzzy Topology ”, suggestions, cor- rections or additions to either list would be gratefully received. Throughout this paper by (X, τ)or simply by X we mean a fuzzy topological space (fts, shorty) due to Chang [31] we give the following definitions : Definition 0.0.1. (a) Let X be a non-empty set and I the unit interval [0,1]. A fuzzy set in X is an element of the set IX of all functions from X to I. (b) 0X and 1X denote the fuzzy sets given by 0X(x) = 0 , for all x ∈ X and 1X(x) = 1 , for all x ∈ X . (c) Equality of two fuzzy sets λ and µ on X is determined by the usual equality condition for mappings, which is given by λ = µ ⇒ (for all x ∈ X,λ(x) = µ(x). (d) A fuzzy subset λ on X is said to be a subset of a fuzzy β on X written as λ ≤ β, if λ(x) ≤ β(x), for all x ∈ X (e) The complement of a fuzzy set λ on X is given by Co(λ) or simply λ = 1 − λ (f) A fuzzy topology τ on X is collection of subsets of IX , such that (i)0X,1X ∈ τ , (ii)if λ, β ∈ τ, then β ∈ τ, (iii)if λi ∈ τ for each i ∈ Λ , then i∈Λ λi ∈ τ.

(2) Fuzzy regular closed[10] if λ = Cl(Int(λ)). A fuzzy point in X with support x ∈ X and value p(0 < p ≤ 1) is denoted by xp. Two fuzzy sets λ and β are said to be quasi-coincident (q-coincident, shorty) denoted by λqβ, if there exists x ∈ X such that λ(x) + β(x) > 1[80] and by − q we denote ” is not q-coincident ” .

The interior, closure and the complement of a fuzzy set λin X are denoted by Int(λ), Cl(λ) and 1 − λ = λc respectively. Recall that a fuzzy point xp is said to be a fuzzy θ-cluster point of a fuzzy set λ[80], if and only if for every fuzzy open q-nbd µ of xp , Cl(µ) is q-coincident with λ. The set of all fuzzy θ-cluster points of λ is called the fuzzy θ-closure of λ and will be denoted by Clθ(λ). A fuzzy set λ will be called θ-closed if and only if λ = Clθ(λ). The complement of a fuzzy θ-closed set is called of fuzzy θ-open and the θ-interior of λ denoted by Intθ(λ) is defined as Intθ(λ) = {xp : for some fuzzy open q-nbd, β of xp, Cl(β) ≤ λ}.
